Title: Reading in a Digital Age: Issues and Opportunities - Part One

Abstract: In a text-saturated world, how do screen reading and print reading affect us, mentally and physically? How does the range of reading possibilities and practices impact our role and responsibilities as librarians? What does the shifting balance of print and eBooks mean for how we promote learning and accommodate different learning styles? What does the anxiety about the loss of print really tell us? These are issues that are playing themselves out in our libraries on an ongoing basis. How does the new reality of reading change our understanding of literacy, learning, and student retention? How do we foster a new critical assessment of texts and multimedia learning objects, while embracing the magic of serendipity? In this issue we explore a few of these questions.
