Abstract:

As a greater number of electronic resources becomes available, retrieving relevant and authoritative information has become progressively more challenging and time consuming. Electronic books (ebooks) are one way to enhance the digital library with global 24-hour-a-day and 7-days-a-week access to authoritative information, and they enable users to quickly retrieve and access specific research material easily, quickly, and effectively. It is crucial to not only provide these electronic resources, but to integrate them into library systems to streamline library operations, as well as promote user adoption. As an eBook provider, NetLibrary, a division of OCLC, has been involved in the selection, cataloguing, and distribution of ebooks.
