Book Buzz: Libraries face issues lending e-books
This is a pretty good article about the availability of e-books from public libraries.
Because e-books come with terms and conditions regarding how and where they can be used and distributed, libraries don’t have the same freedom with e-books as they do with traditional print books. The report continues, “Libraries continue to have to deal with imposed and inflexible terms and conditions, some of which impede legislated copyright exceptions.”
I’ve borrowed a number of e-books from The Seattle Public Library, but some titles I’ve looked for just aren’t available for download!
