For those interested parties who were unable to attend the Exploring eBooks, eReaders and Libraries session, here are some documents that give the gist of their talks.

Wesley College investigates eReaders
Wilma Kurvink and Bart Rutherford spoke of recent developments in their eReader research, but noted that the Synergy article below gives an almost full picture of their presentation.
The 2009 SLAV Research Grant recipients Wilma Kurvink and her team Marie Turnbull, Bart Rutherford, Margaret Pajak, Meg Moores and Cameron McIntosh, at Wesley College have just completed a study into using eReaders at school. Wilma has kindly shared an edited version of her report with readers of Bright Ideas. A fuller account will be published in SLAV’s Synergy online journal shortly.
For those with access to the Synergy journal, the article by Wilma Kurvink is available in Volume 8, Number 1, 2010 and is called The usefulness of an e-reader as a portable reader and connected device. A PDF of the article appears to be available here.
