Nebraska library adds 7,000 e-books titles

The La Vista, Nebraska Public Library will soon add 7,000 Netlibrary titles to its current online collection of approximately 20,000 e-books. A $250 grant was awarded by the Nebraska Library Commission to purchase an expanded subscription to the Netlibary service.

Each e-book title has an associated list of keywords in an electronic database to allow library patrons to easily find e-books of interest using keyword searches. E-book titles are free to registered library card holders, and can be downloaded to their personal computers and "checked out" for a period of two weeks.

Was anyone able to find the technical requirements for using these eBooks? I'm curious as to how they make them expire in 2 weeks.

Netlibrary mentions PDF, but, again, no tech specifications that I can find.

Could this be yet another "you have to use a buggy, insecure OS (i.e. Windows) to use these eBooks"?

Mobipocket allows expiry periods in their DRM, so it's a possibility they'll use that.

Nebraska Overdrive Libraries, which have had audio books in WMA and MP3, have just added ebooks!!! DRM pdf and epubs.

You must have a participating Nebraska Library card, but this is great news. For my city it is the first ebook checkouts.

Mods, you might want to add this to the library list in Wiki.

A $250 grant gives access to 7K books? I may have to donate that to our local library.
