E-library at Taiwan Airport

Springwise: The e-library, based in Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, has 4 hundred titles in its collection — accessible in English or Chinese, and in ePub or Zinio formats — which can be read in the airport, but not taken away or downloaded onto the user’s personal device. Set up by Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou, the library is run by the airport duty-totally free shop, and was designed in collaboration with Taiwan’s government-funded Institute for Information Sector, costing more than NTD three million. There are at the moment only thirty devices on which passengers can study the ebooks, which, as an report on ARN points out, is limiting when taking into consideration that the airport handles up to 17 million passengers a year.
