To date the Observatory has held two meetings of the Plenary: one in June 2008 for its constitution, and one in March 2009.
On 22 October 2008 the Technical Committee met and carried out a series of tasks for approval by the Plenary in its last session in March:
On 14 September 2009, a first meeting was held of the Workgroup on E-Books, consisting of representatives from the public and private sectors related to the book industry, new technologies, the promotion of reading, libraries and research. Their work will be completed with the production of a report analysing data and experiences and extracting conclusions on the situation and potential of the digital format for books, the adaptation of the publishing industry to e-books, and the application of e-books in teaching methods in schools and in research and publication activities in Universities, and the new reading habits and ways of reading in relation to books.
On 1 December 2009 the Group held a second meeting to present the preliminary draft and agreed on new lines of work to follow when the report is completed.
