Next week the Learning Commons at the North Carolina State University Library will begin lending Kindle ebook readers. Students will tell reference librarians which books they would like to have downloaded onto the devices, which they will check out for one week. Once a book has been downloaded on to the device it will be left on it, so the collection of books on the devices will grow according to popular demand.The collection will initially focus on popular reading materials, and the library has also subscribed to major newspapers, available wirelessly on the Kindles.
Academic Computing here at UVM will soon be experimenting with a similar lending program…stay tuned for more news on that.
