Digital libraries growing trend in campuses around nation

“In an age when people can store the entire bestseller list in technology that fits in the palm of their hand, the future of ink and paper books appears questionable. This fall, the digital library idea will be tested on a large scale in San Antonio, Texas following previous failed launches across the nation. On a smaller scale, K-State has already dabbled in the world of electronic books at several campus libraries, with the potential to expand in the future.

In 2000, K-State first pioneered its use of digital library technology in the Fiedler Engineering Library, located in the Durland Engineering Complex.”
