I am happy for the library in New York that’s getting tons of press for circulating books on iPod shuffles. Truly, I am, but, what the heck? Many libraries have been circing books on mp3 players for some time now. Why hasn’t any attention been given to them? We all know the answer to this: Because no other mp3 player is as desirable/known/HOTT as the iPod. For golly’s sake, when I tell people about our books on mp3 program, I have to say, “Yeah, you’ll be using the Audible Otis.”
Does anyone have any comments on the legality of this program of the South Huntington Public Library. Think they’re safe if they stay with a one paid download/one circulation model?
