"There are basically two types of digital library: those in image format, whose user-friendliness is lesser and text format, which is rarer over all." I don't understand this sentence... --Larry Sanger 12:50, 16 November 2007 (CST)

Thanks for telling me. :-) What I mean is the name "virtual library" is applied to two slightly different things. You have virtual libraries with images files (Google Books) and virtual libraries with text files (Project Gutenberg). Text file libraries are not as common as image files libraries, but are far more interesting to the average user. Hugo Voisard 22:34, 22 December 2007 (CST)
