New licensing terms from the nation’s top publishers are restricting how libraries can purchase and circulate eBooks. These new policies drastically limit access and ultimately hurt people who depend upon libraries the most. The OLC hosted an eBook webinar on Tues., March 3 that provided the most current information on eBook lending, advocacy efforts at the federal level, and specific actions you can take to advance these efforts.
OLC’s Executive Director Michelle Francis covered the status of the #eBooksForAll campaign; results of recent meetings with publishers; federal government intervention (including next steps with Congress); and media and community outreach tools to build library support. If you were unable to participate in the live webinar, a recording is available.
