Collaboration for Greater Access to E-Books

The Chronicle of Higher Education has a good new blog post, “Collaboration Seeks to Provide Easier Access to E-Books.”

The steady growth of e-books has forced libraries to contend with how to curate and distribute materials in a way that makes them easy for increasingly technology-oriented patronage to access.

Some 150 public and academic libraries are trying to respond to that challenge through a new collaboration with the Internet Archive and Open Library. The arrangement will allow library patrons at participating institutions to access e-books owned and stored at libraries other than their home libraries.
