Libraries turning to iPods and iTunes

Playlist has an article outlining how some libraries are using iPods and iTunes as a solution for librarians who are seeking to provide access to their digital collections.
Just as the iPod transformed the way individuals connect with their personal media collections, so too is it changing the way libraries help the public connect with mass media collections. Both iPods and iTunes enable libraries to provide new distribution methods for digital collections of books, music, and now, video. Yet with these digital collections come issues of copyright and access that pose new challenges for modern librarians.
