Is it okay for an academic library to purchase mp3's via, say, iTunes, burn them to CD, and make the CD available for listening within the library facilities? We have a lot of classical music box sets and when an individual disc goes missing I'd rather spend a few bucks downloading only those particular tracks rather than purchasing an entire box set as replacement.
Update: iTunes says no. My only other thought is to get the disc from another library by ILL and burn a copy.

The same problem occurs with audiobooks on CD. I've heard that some of the CD-audiobook publishers are willing to sell replacement copies of specific disks.
