The Time article by Katherine Bonamici, "Are Libraries the Next Napster?", completely ignores the technology and standards developed and implemented by netLibrary, Inc., whose innovations have been recognized by the National Information Standards Organization (see press release, below) Bethesda, Md., USA ? (July 26, 2001) NISO, the National Information Standards Organization, is pleased to welcome a new member, netLibrary, to its voting roster. The addition of this organization complements and extends NISO's ability to develop standards for the changing Internet environment. netLibrary (www.netLibrary.com) is a leading provider of eBooks and Internet-based content management services. Hundreds of publishers of academic, professional, reference, and scholarly books have adopted netLibrary's digital rights management infrastructure. The organization develops, archives, hosts, and securely distributes eBooks and print-ready files through a variety of channels, including academic, corporate, public, and school libraries. netLibrary eBooks are full-text searchable and available for use on personal computers in online and offline formats. In the developing eBook environment, netLibrary's expertise will be an invaluable asset to NISO and the community that NISO serves.
