OPLIN 4Cast #169: E-books: reviews, your rights, DRM and piracy

Posted in 4cast

The question isn’t whether or not your library needs e-books for your patrons, it’s how do you deal with your patrons once they have them in their hands?

  • There’s a new e-book on the market…the Alex E-Reader, and it will support Adobe DRM technology.  Here are reviews for ten of the others:  IPad, SchmiPad: 10 E-Readers and Tablets You Can Get Right Now
  • Cool fact:
    One of the holdouts has decided to release his works electronically yesterday:  John Grisham joins e-book parade
    Still holding out: J. K. Rowling.
