A very interesting assessment of the current situation with ebooks in libraries. We'd all like to see more available but expansion is facing some constraints.
What if public sentiment turned so strongly against the "selfish and greedy" publishers that the public demanded libraries to ignore the publisher's restrictions and make ebooks widely available as a public service? Unlikely in the US, perhaps, but feasible in jurisdictions with a more socialistic bent? This thing could go political!
