The February 2014 issue of Cites & Insights (volume 14, number 2) is
now available for downloading at

The two-column print-oriented (and optimized for printing) PDF is 42 pages long.

If you're planning to read it on a tablet or online, you may prefer
the 80-page 6" x 9" single-column version (not optimized for printing)

This issue completes the book-length discussion of ebook issues. It contains:
Perspective: E and P: What I Ignored pp. 1-2

Possible motivations behind some comments and stances on pbooks and ebooks

Intersections: It Seems Like the Obvious Case: Ebooks as Textbooks pp. 2-15

For more than a decade I've assumed that textbooks represented the
obvious billion-dollar (well, multi-billion-dollar) market for ebooks.
It turns out not to be that easy.

Libraries: Ebooks and Libraries pp. 15-42

This discussion leaves out way too much and probably grossly
oversimplifies the situation, but I do discuss some items having to do
with the philosophical and general issues, problems, publishers and
vendors, Kindles and libraries, and Douglas County and friends.
