Unified Discovery and Management of E-book Content and Lending

The lending of e-books continues to be an activity of critical interest in public libraries. As e-books gain ever wider popularity by the general public, libraries have been steadily working out the many problems related to offering e-book services similar to those offered for print materials. As e-book content increases relative to libraries’ other collection components and services, libraries increasingly want more integration into their existing strategic patron interfaces and management systems rather than treating e-books as an isolated service.
