Roy Tennant on E-Books and Use of Digitized Books in Library Catalogs

Roy Tennant posted two pieces to his blog recently that bear on recent IFTF discussions. The first post discusses an anecdotal survey by ebrary and librarians from the University of Rochester and Northeastern State U. of faculty opinions toward ebooks. Tennant concludes that ebooks and print books will both be around for a long time because we often want them for different purposes. The second post evaluates the New York Public Library's attempt to add links from records in its catalog to books digitized by Google.
