Thanks to Christina Manz for sending us this link:
Judy (Temple) and Lisa (Harker Heights) are in a news segment talking about their libraries’ ebook lending. Lots of great information for borrowers and the library-publisher relationship packed in just 2 minutes.
No real surprise, but the article has some interesting graphics, including what devices patrons are reading ebooks on and changes in patron statistics due to ebooks. The graphics also show the different ways that ebooks have impacted public libraries versus academic libraries. Part of this is that academics have been buying ebooks for a while. But the bottom line is that public libraries are adapting to patrons’ needs, which is a great thing, especially in these lean budget years.
