New Ebook Cheat Sheet for Librarians

One of the blogs I follow is by Matt Phillips, a librarian in Henrico County, Virginia. Today he posted a link to the ebook cheat sheet he made for his fellow librarians:

I was asked a few weeks ago to create a cheat sheet for eBooks so our staff could have something to reference and handout to the public. Luckily I had just read a very helpful post by Jason Griffey that really summed up a lot of issues with eBooks, file types and DRM. I asked in the comments if I could adapt the post and he said it was ok. So I did.

It's actually a pretty useful cheat sheet for everyone, not just librarians. BTW, the PDF is actually 2 pages. The second page is  the ereader cheat sheet that Overdrive released. It's not as useful, IMO.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Thank you for reading and linking to my my cheat sheet post. I revised it this morning to correct an error that was pointed out to me regarding BN books and Sony reader compatibility.
