With the Internet and online-bookstores, do we need e-books in libraries?
Yes. Libraries are rapidly changing focus and purpose as the digital age develops. To accommodate European library users is important today and tomorrow. It is essential to improve libraries by developing resources that include e-books so that they don’t become museums of books.
Libraries serve the whole population without any distinction and guarantee free access to information.
