I seem to remember a library in New York that when the original iPod Shuffle came out, they checked them out with downloaded e-book material on it.

Hello -

I know some libraries have begun circulating Kindles and and other e-readers. Has anyone tried circulating flash MP3 players, for downloadable audiobooks? If so, what have been the benefits/problems associated with them?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
