From CISTI's press release:
The National Research Council's Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC-CISTI) and MyiLibrary, the market leading eBook aggregator, have partnered to launch an innovative new service called eBook Loans, an electronic twist on the traditional library-interlending model. With the click of a mouse, eBook Loans offer instant access to tens of thousands of electronic books from major scholarly publishers, including Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, Blackwell and Springer.
I'm proud to have been involved in the development of CISTI's eBook Loan service. Basically, the CISTI catalogue now contains the data for the books that MyiLibrary offers within the scientific technical and medical fields. We worked with the guys at MyiLibrary to enable a decent linkage between CISTI and MyiLibrary's collection, and to provide a simple means to register, pay for and receive your ebooks. The procedure is to search the CISTI catalogue, and if you get a hit for a book can can be electronically loaned, you'll be directed to login/register and pay for your loan. You're then given a link that's good for 30 days to access the loaned material.
To peruse the available eBooks, you can click here to activate a eBook loan specific search of CISTI's Catalogue. Thousands of eBooks are available.
