Discussion of e-books in libraries and universities covers a range of issues such as selection, purchasing, licensing, management and user support. One topic that rarely arises is that of e-book creation. Most librarians see themselves as consumers rather than creators of e-books. Yet libraries have a collective treasure trove of books and other materials that may be suitable for digitization. This article summarises numerous issues that arise when creating e-books and publishing them in open-access XHTML format on the web, and describes policies that can help resolve these issues.
