Libraries, patrons, and e-books - PEW Report


Summary of findings from the latest Pew report on libraries, patrons, e-books:


  •  58% of Americans have a library card, and 69% say that their local library is important to them and their family. Library card holders use more technology, and they report that they read more books.
  • 12% of readers of e-books borrowed an e-book from the library in the past year. But a majority of Americans do not know that this service is provided by their local library.
  • E-book borrowers appreciate the selection of e-books at their local library, but they often encounter wait lists, unavailable titles or incompatible file formats.
  • Many Americans would like to learn more about borrowing e-books.
  • Library card holders are more than twice as likely to have bought their most recent book than to have borrowed it from a library. Many e-book borrowers purchase e-books, too.
  • Leading-edge librarians and patrons say that the advent of e-books has produced a major transformation in book searching and borrowing at libraries.

I am starting up a new internet blog directory and was wanting to know if I can submit your site?
I'm trying to mature my directory gradually by hand so that it retains top quality. I'll make sure and put your blog
in the proper category and I'll also use, "Blogger: Caribbean Connector" as your anchor text. Make sure you let me know if this is alright with you by mailing me at: shayla_hooper@bigstring.com. Thanks alot :)

Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen previously.
Kudos, more at relevant website!

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog
in the near future but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
If you have any suggestions, please share.
Thanks!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate

Hola! I was curious to know if setting up a blogging site
such your own: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=7804741865306206139&postID=1721786276547581925 is challenging
to do for inexperienced people? I've been hoping to set up my own website for a while now but have been turned off because I've always assumed it required tons of work.
What do you think? Appreciate it

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering

Outside of that promise, the purity or promise rings
are quickly a reminder to the personal to help keep his or her word to God.
They will have amazing diamond rings that they are more than willing to sell for a reduced cost.

Irrespective of the material chosen, you must ensure that it is of top quality.
