Libraries collaborate to share e-books
In another interesting recent article the Chronicle's Wired Campus reported on a new collaboration between libraries to share e-books. The collaboration involves both the Internet Archive and Open Library. According to the article, the arrangement will allow library patrons at participating institutions to access e-books owned and stored at libraries other than their home libraries using the e-lending technology provided by Open Library.
