Publishers Refusing to Sell/License eBooks to Libraries

Posted March 6, 2012 | Posted in Front Page

Recently, a host of publishers have refused to sell and/or license eBooks to libraries. We are very concerned about this development which will result in less eBooks available to our patrons. If this concerns you as well, we urge you to contact the publishers directly. Their information is available below.

Here is a link to a library blog that is covering this controversy:
