MyCopy from Springer
"Springer has launched MyCopy powered by SpringerLink, a pilot project to expand its services to eBook users. MyCopy allows a library's registered patrons to order soft cover copies, for their personal use, of those Springer eBooks that the library has previously purchased. Initially, 14 selected libraries and research institutions in the USA and Canada take part in the pilot project with more test partners set to join in early 2009. The MyCopy offer is currently valid for more than 11,000 eBooks out of a total of 30,000 Springer eBooks published since 2005. MyCopy books feature a full color cover while the book content itself is printed in black and white. They can be ordered by registered patrons at libraries that have previously purchased a Springer eBook collection. All MyCopy books are priced at $24.95 (including shipping and handling within the USA and Canada)"
