Available Online Means Many Things …

Available online means many things, and often less than you would think. ETH Zurich bragged about their library about Swiss writer Max Frisch and how they would make all 1810 volumes “online available”

What sounds too good to be true is too good to be true — all they did (and admittedly this involves quite some work) is adding the books to their online catalogue.
