"The Sony Reader Experiment at Penn State University
"Sony isn't thinking big enough on this opportunity for their Reader
product at Penn State University. As this article notes, Sony has
donated 100 of their Readers to the university's libraries in the hopes
of learning more about how it can be used in a college setting."

Subject: Sony e-readers
I have had the following request from one of our academics:
I am thinking of getting a sony e-reader from waterstones - is there any
being done in the sector on using them as learning tools in libraries?
whole course reading on them etc? they take pdf and word files along
many other formats
Is anybody doing any work on this?
