Tim Spindler, “Statistical Analysis Models: Applications for Libraries”
"Librarians may be good at counting, but as a whole the profession is not trained to evaluate and analyze statistics. Librarians offer numbers often as proof of the value of their work with little thought as to whether those numbers really establish anything of value…[Librarians] need to think critically about which statistics are useful."
The Gutenberg Project aims to make materials from the public domain available for free to as many people as possible, including a large collection of ebooks in a wide variety of formats. The drawback is that they tend to be older titles, since books placed on the site must be part of the public domain.
The organization is similar to many websites, especially those with eBooks. they have a couple of odd subjects in the sidebar on the left-hand side unique to Free-eBooks.net, first “Fan Fiction” second, “Short Stories.”
