  2. This presentation offered an excellent perspective on etextbooks. I teach collection development at Wayne State University where one of my short essay questions on a controversial topic is whether public, academic, and school libraries should provide access to textbooks. The main reason for doing so is meeting a key information need. Issues against have been cost, how to make multiple students happy, and the rapid appearance of new editions. Perhaps the ideas in this presentation might help libraries provide a service that would gain many friends at an acceptable price.
