A Trenchant View of World War I
by Marydee Ojala
Next year is the centennial of the beginning of World War I. It was July 1914 when what was then called the Great War (no one really believed there would be a second world war) began. Although there's no dearth of books and articles on the subject, what's been missing is the ordinary soldier's perspective. With the digitization of 1,500 trench journals and unit magazines, ProQuest is filling this gap by providing access to unique primary sources.

Who’s Who in Ebooks
by Brandi Scardilli
Just as books don't magically appear on library shelves, ebooks don't automatically pop up in a library's online catalog. Librarians work with ebook vendors to get econtent into the hands, or rather, onto the e-readers, of their patrons. With the many e-lending options now on the market, here are five of the big ones with a few of their major features for cross comparison.
