FAIR EBOOK PRICES

LONG OVERDUE FOR LIBRARIES

As demand grows, libraries are responding by offering more ebooks. This is what libraries have always done and will always do – ensure access to information for all. But we face challenges.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • In some cases, major multinational publishers charge libraries 3–5 times more for ebooks than they charge consumers.
  • There are caps and time limits on ebook use.
  • This means there are fewer titles and fewer copies for readers to discover.

Lots of samples on the website.
