Abstract

In this article the author addresses various aspects regarding the feasibility of library lending services for electronic books (e-books). She suggests that several conditions make e-books difficult to incorporate into library collections, particularly at academic libraries. Topics include lack of interoperability among e-book reader formats, compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), and digital rights management of e-books by publishers and vendors.
