[Kurz] Print on Demand für Books out of Print

Amazon.com will in Kooperation mit Bibliotheken vergriffene Werke und Bücher “out of print” als Books on Demand anbieten.

Why settle for mere digital copies of books (a la the Google Book Search project1 and the Open Content Alliance2) when you can have an edition printed, bound and sent to you in the mail? That’s the twist behind a recent partnership announced by Amazon.com3, Kirtas Technologies4, Emory University5, University of Maine, Toronto Public Library, and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

Out of Print Books Get New Life via Amazon and Participating Libraries:engl: via Disruptive Library Technology Jester (We’re Disrupted, We’re Librarians, and We’re Not Going to Take It Anymore)
