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. Â It is essential to improve librariesÂ by developing resources that include e-books so that they donâ€™t become museums of books.
Libraries serve the whole population without any distinction and guarantee free access to information.Â
