Circle the Date for eBooks - 2018

Interesting article and interactive chart from The Economist (clear year numbers to move the chart along). By their projection, eBook sales will exceed printed book sales in the US in 2018. Comments to the article point out that the data may underrepresent eBook sales by relying on ISBNs.

Whether or not that's true, and given other data that suggests the penetration of eBooks varies by category and country, the trend is clear -- as it has been for several years. 

Amazon is the leader in eBook sales in the US, and, apparently, Barnes & Noble and Apple switch back and forth from month to month as to who is second and third.

Drupal and Public Library Policies

It's spring in the North Country...and that means that Ewa Jankowska, director of the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System is scheduling Trustee Forums for library trustees, so I'm dusting off my notes and slides. The first one is Saturday, May 16 10AM-1PM at CEFLS. There are some spaces left, so contact CEFLS if you're interested.

By coincidence, I'm working on a new Drupal site and had one of those moments where two different projects clicked together. The issue is policies for organizations and policies for Drupal sites.
