Netflix unwittingly expands library lending March 10, 2008

Some libraries apparently have been using Netflix to supplement their own movie holdings, letting patrons use a library Netflix account to borrow items the library doesn’t have. Someone asked about this on Publib, but didn’t get any responses. This issue also came up for discussion at the CLAMS conference I attended this week, but the consensus was that the practice violates the Netflix terms of use, as is also pointed out in this brief Newsweek article (which was cited on Publib).
