English abstract

The advent of electronic books in libraries involves above all advantages, but also has some drawbacks. In this article We will see what are the major changes being made by the libraries to accommodate this new visitor that comes to stay. Apart from to update with the technical aspects of the digital format, library staff must learn to relate all the actors involved in another way: users, publishers, distributors, booksellers, autores… They are mistaken who think that the main contribution of the e-book is space-saving. Make site, which is already here.

Hagan sitio, que ya está aquí.
