Years later I became a library employee, moving from behind the shelves to behind the desk. There also began my interest in book publishing. I desperately wanted to be behind the scenes.

Check It Out is a blog interested in the digital world and what these changes mean for publishers and in turn, for libraries. I will explore borrowing eBooks, eBook distributors, applications and more!
