"Old News" - Past Newsletters

Please note that the newsletter ceased with the April 2009 issue. As the editor stated in that issue: "After almost two years I am putting down my pen. This is the final newsletter. I hope you have enjoyed past issues and that they have provided you with some signposts to exploring our ebook collection. I find that I am away from my desk quite a bit and it is difficult to keep up with creating new items for inclusion in the newsletter. A number of other articles, relating to ebooks in our collection, appear in the "Treasure Chest" which can be accessed from the link at the top of this page. Details of the contents of each newsletter appear below.
