Overview of the Current State of E-Books in Libraries
I'm officially on vacation, but I came across this post about the latest update on e-books in libraries that I thought I'd share with you: http://www.davidleeking.com/2011/07/05/ebook-vendors-at-ala11. He makes some excellent points, and gives some great links for you to click through to find out more information. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: e-books are still very much in a formative stage. What they look like today is almost definitely not what they'll look like five years from now. It's exciting being able to watch it all unfold, even if (as a librarian) it can be incredibly frustrating at the same time.
