Mark it down. Today FIU's Green Library began loaning Kindles equipped with ebooks to the public. Apparently the loan will be for 14 day and stiff penalties for "losing" the device will be imposed. Apparently they still require that the patron rent their device rather than make the materials available to anyone with an e-reader, but the next step is surely coming sooner rather than later.
NOW AVAILABLE: eREADERS!
