eBooks Find A New Home… In Libraries

from the trying-again dept

After so many ebook attempts have failed miserably, it’s always interesting to read about a different plan. It seems that a bunch of libraries are willing to try their luck on a new ebook system from a company called eBrary. It will be free to “borrow” the books online, but will cost you to make copies or print out pages of a book. It’s an interesting idea, but no one is completely sure what sort of demand there is for such a system.
