Michael Kozlowski (3689 Posts) Hands-on: Checking out library books with Kindle clunky, but awesome.
Public libraries have long lived by the "Blockbuster model": require people to drive to a physical location, pick up a physical book, then drive home, only to repeat the driving a few weeks later when the book is due.
And how well did that approach work out for Blockbuster as iTunes and Netflix made digital delivery a reality? But books haven't gone digital as quickly as music and then movies did.

In May 2013, School Library Journal underwent a major server migration for its archived web content, which happened slightly sooner than originally expected. As a result, much of the content from 2004 to 2012 is currently unavailable to the public. However, this content has not been lost, and our web staff is in the process of converting these past articles for integration into the WordPress-based website you see here, which was launched in 2012. Many of these older articles have already been restored, and more will continue to be restored on an ongoing basis as they are cleaned up. Ultimately, this migration will allow for greater discoverability of all archived SLJ content, both on the website and across the Web in general. Keep in mind that the article you’re looking for may already have been restored to the new site.CLICK HERE TO SEARCH FOR IT BY TITLE (this link will open in a new browser).
