Computerworld – Along with a new e-reader device, Sony Electronics yesterday unveiled a tool set that’s sure to delight librarians who are worried about the future of book-borrowing — and reading.
The new Web-based Sony Library Finder tool can be used to find e-books in the local library that can be checked out, downloaded onto a desktop computer and then loaded onto a Sony Reader device — all without charge.
