With so much material available on the web, much of it useful, we are still wrestling with providing complete course readings for what are otherwise online courses. And the struggle is not the technology, but working around restrictive / non-existent copyright legislation. Even many of our e-books in the library provide only limited access where the print version very easily (and within the law) provided opportunities to copy selected materials under fair use provisions. I wonder if any other libraries have struggled with this?
