After investigating NetLibrary and Overdrive, I don't see me using this in the future. If I was still in college, it would be great to have ebooks of the many textbooks you are required to buy. In the academic world, ebooks are great resource since it seems like the publisher always has a new version for every upcoming school year. I prefer to have a book in hand then to read it sitting at a computer. However, I can see the usefulness for rare book collections and university or institutional private collections. Or for individuals who have the need to have access to any book available 24/7.
