Libraries Continue to Battle for Fair Access to Ebooks
by Nancy K. Herther
Academic and special libraries have found comparatively fewer problems in gaining access to ebooks for their clients than school and public libraries. Although many of the trade titles remain in rigid vendor-based formats, major research publishers have created workable contracts and pricing, fast and sophisticated search systems, and flexible interfaces that can be viewed on computers as well as on mobile devices. Today, access issues seem most critical for public and school libraries, particularly in the U.S. However, progress is being made slowly.

Streaming Video in Public Libraries
by Brandi Scardilli
In the beginning, libraries lent books. Fast-forward to the present day, and patrons can borrow all kinds of things from the library, including books, ebooks, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs. The newest available format for patrons is streaming video, which is quickly gaining traction in public libraries across the country. Several librarians shared their experiences with streaming video lending, so institutions thinking about implementing their own programs know what to expect.
