From Sylvia, our Systems Librarian

Thanks, Sylvia, for the Comment on an earlier post.  And thanks for this additional reference for our current reading on ebooks and ereaders:

Stephen's Lighthouse:  eBook Publishing Standards - NOT

“These different formats pose a problem for publishers who want to create graphical and multimedia works such as picture books or children’s books—they could end up having to create the same book three or four different ways for three or four different platforms.  That’s a lot of extra work.”

Sylvia also sends the VPL ebook blog and some other sites, my favourite of which is Buffy's (The Unquiet Librarian) LibGuide: ebooks and ereaders for school libraries from which I boldly borrow the infographic in the next post.
