  1. That actually makes a lot of sense.

    I use an iPhone app called, I think, Bookmyn. It logs me straight into the local library, so I can check and renew my loans, as well as do the usual simple catalogue searches.

  2. The kindle book is 132 out of 750 odds in the Christian Fundamentalist books!! It’s nothing about Christian Fundamentalism, but is all about contents pages and how they make people happier than drugs. It’s never been advertised outside this blog, so someone must have bought it. What was it like? I haven’t read it for about a hundred years! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ancient-Futures/dp/B003Z9K4XG Hotboy

  3. Hi Rob,

    It would be good if you could also easily search the full text of every electronic document (ebook, ejournal, etc) available in/from your library, especially if it was a university or college library. NCSU Libraries comes closest to this that I’ve found http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/ but there’s still a long way to go in terms of full text. Many other university libraries have bought systems that don’t let you search unless you’re logged in.
