Sony Reader Devices Can Now Borrow E-Books From Libraries

The Wired Campus – “The new feature involves a service by a company called OverDrive Inc., which distributes electronic books to about 9,000 libraries, about 100 of which are academic libraries.Now libraries that use the OverDrive service will give patrons the option of downloading the e-books to their Sony Readers. A few weeks after a user checks out a book, the loan period ends, and the e-books are removed from the user’s collection.”
