As educators we must be concerned with our "students wanting or needing access to a minimal level of digital technology and not being able to get it."

Learning with 'e's

As the #lilac13 Twitter stream will reveal, there were lively and protracted debates around the changing nature of library spaces, the nature of knowledge, the future of books and reading, and the impact of digital media.
