In recent years, members of the Association of Christian Librarians (ACL) have clearly stated their interest in seeing publishers – especially those with evangelical affiliation – offer electronic book products in formats that are friendly to libraries. This subject has generated conversation at our business meetings and on our listserv. In the summer of 2006, some 100 members of ACL’s Christian Library Consortium purchased a collection of 400 religion-oriented electronic books from NetLibrary®. At the 2007 conference, which convened in Grand Rapids, Michigan, representatives of four local Christian publishers participated in a panel discussion that was dominated by the subject of electronic distribution.
