Things are changing now however. Print, especially for what I like is even harder to find. There are no more magazine stands on Capitol Hill. There doesn't seem to be any magazines to buy there even if there was. I'm not sure if things are getting worse though. POD is getting fairly big and while looking around I have run across several magazines that sell such (although usually at high prices). I've even contributed to one called Graceless. Then there are the PDF downloads. I've found a selection of magazines that are such. It looks like I may be getting an iPad just to read them as doing so on a laptop is unsatisfying. Their seems to be plenty of life out there but it is changing.
The one thing that I really wonder about and that maybe somebody out there with some library skills can enlighten me on, is 'how are they handling citations if everything moves to the web and digital?' Webpages change and often do. News websites change stories and re-edit articles without to much thought or notice. They get moved, taken down, etc. How do we reference such information especially since serious research requires such? What will the Oxford English Dictionary do once there are no more dead tree books to show as examples of a new word? Can a PDF be treated as a book? Will there be a standard that professional websites will have to adhere to be allowed as a reference? This topic really does bug me.
