One possible model for libraries that are investigating the introduction of eBooks, is the digital distribution of eBooks through library and library users computers, via Internet connection. This paper explores the various models that can be adopted to implement the on-line distribution of eBooks. Issues discussed include content availability, content suitability and benefits to library users of on-line eBooks. Models considered include the established netLibrary and the emerging ebrary. A brief comment on the likely time frame to introduce on-line eBooks models is also included.
