eBooks now available on inter-library loan. Research Information 2007; 30:28

The National Research Council Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC-CISTI) and MyiLibrary, an eBook aggregator, have partnered to launch a new sevice called eBook Loans. This electronic version of the traditional library interlending model reduces the costs associated with processing interlibrary loans and allows publishers to benefit from a new channel to market their content and users to gain instant access to the eBook they require. In addition there is no need to worry about returning a borrowed book, nor about lost or damaged books.
