eReader Petting Zoo this Monday

Monday, Nov. 19, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.eReader next to stack of paper books
Hamersly Library lobby

The eReader Petting Zoo allows you time in a non-commercial setting to poke around several brands and formats of eBook devices and to discuss their pros and cons.  (Reminder: holiday shopping is imminent.)

We’ll have a variety of devices for you to play with

  • Kindle, 6″ E Ink Display
  • NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight
  • Kobo
  • The new Kindle Fire HD 7″
  • Google Nexus 7
  • iPad 2

Also, we will schedule our ebooks and ereader workshop in January, during which we’ll detail how to download library ebooks onto your smartphone, tablet, or eReader (possibly a brand new one from the holidays?).  These will be reprised from the workshop first held during Faculty Week 2012, but we’ll have focused sessions for iPad/iPhone owners, for Kindle owners, and general sessions for owners of other devices. You can also consult our Ebooks @ WOU guide and consult with us if you have problems.
