Julie Bosman has written an interesting and informative article entitled “As Library E-Books Live Long, Publisher Sets Expiration Date” in the Media & Advertising section of The New York Times looking at the strained relations between public libraries and e-book publishers in general, and the new “26 borrowers” limit imposed HarperCollins Publishers.
