Four German libraries to lend digital media online

Four city libraries – in Hamburg, Cologne, Munich and Würzburg – have arranged in cooperation with the Wiesbaden-based company DiViBib GmbH to create the option for users of borrowing digital media online. At some of these libraries online burrowing is already possible, at others it will be in the near future. Thus the Bücherhallen Hamburg [City Library of Hamburg] and the Stadtbücherei Würzburg [City Library of Würzburg] have already forged ahead; while Cologne and Munich will follow in June and July respectively. Before the year is out other libraries are likely to join the system; the talk is of libraries in Düsseldorf, Berlin, Bremen and Frankfurt-on-the-Oder. More Info.
