Ethereal eBooks, The Cloud, & Library Collections

I keep finding the most amazing articles in Searcher Magazine. In the September 2011 issue there is an article titled 21st-Century Lending Libraries: Books in a Cloud? which goes into some great detail about many of the issues involved in ebook publishing and the difficulties libraries face in collecting ebooks. Nancy K. Herther, an Anthropology/Sociology Librarian from the University of Minnesota Libraries does an excellent job covering consumer issues, major platforms, the future of publishing, the growth of ebooks, and it's impact on libraries.
