Business as Usual: Amazon.com and the Academic Library

Journal of Academic Librarianship, v28 n5 p319-324 Sep-Oct 2002
In 1999, Steve Coffman proposed that libraries form a single interlibrary loan based entity patterned after Amazon.com. This study examined the suitability of Amazon.com's Web interface and record enhancements for academic libraries. Amazon.com could not deliver circulating monographs in the University at Albany Libraries' collection quickly enough to satisfy undergraduates.
