Reading off of Cloud
April 05, 2014
Bibliotech is the online Bexar County Digital Library. It reportedly is the country's first digital library taking full advantage of cloud to store its materials. You won't see books at its main physical location in San Antonio, Texas but a bank of computers operating seven days a week. They allow checking out five e-Books at one time for a period of 14 days, audiobooks for the same amount of time. They also loan out e-Readers but you'd better get it back on time or your account is dunned $150 plus a late fee. This concept certainly must rile those patrons who enjoy thumbing through the pages of library books or whiffing the mustiness or dustiness of old ones.
