Public Library Use of Free E-Resources
Hill, Heather; Bossaller, Jenny
Journal of Librarianship and Information Science, v45 n2 p103-112 Jun 2013
This article describes a multi-method research project examining the use of various freely available online collections and projects, such as Project Gutenberg, the Internet Archive, and Creative Commons-licensed ebooks, by public libraries. This research begins with the questions: what are libraries doing with freely available materials? Are there barriers to incorporating them into the collection? What role are librarians playing in expanding access and awareness of these resources? (Contains 2 figures.)
