Beyond the Headlines: E-books in Libraries of the Future

Beyond the Headlines: E-books in Libraries of the Future | Information Science | Scoop.it
Just like in the book publishing industry, the rise of e-books is propelling libraries into a revolution. The most basic questions of library operations are in play. For example, libraries are not able to purchase access to some titles. Other titles are available, but pricing and other access terms are markedly less favorable as compared to print books.

 

This new blog will feature perspectives from the library community on developments and directions of the e-book marketplace and the implications for libraries. In addition, we hope that the posts will stimulate discussions within the e-book ecosystem more broadly to develop improved ways to connect authors and readers, the long-standing common bond of publishers and libraries.
