Description

This brief submission raised the issue of libraries' limited access to ebooks for elending purposes because of publishers' restrictions on sales of ebook titles to libraries. It raised concerns about some publishers refusing to allow libraries to acquire ebooks for lending concurrent with their general release, at a fair and affordable price, and under licences that acknowledge copyright law exceptions for libraries.
