A Big Six publisher officially grants ownership of its e-books to libraries

A Big Six publisher officially grants ownership of its e-books to libraries | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

"In a Library Journal item posted today, reporter Michael Kelley writes that Random House—one of the so-called Big Six publishers, don’t forget—has made a rather stunning proclamation in regards to their sales of e-books to libraries. The following quotes are the words of Skip Dye, Random House’s vice president of library and academic marketing and sales, who participated in two recent interviews with Kelly:

“When libraries buy their RH, Inc. ebooks from authorized library wholesalers,” says Skip Dye, Random House’s vice president of library and academic marketing and sales, “it is our position that they own them.”

“This is our business model: we sell copies of our ebooks to an approved list of library wholesalers, and those wholesalers are supposed to resell them to libraries. In our view, this purchase constitutes ownership of the book by the library. It is not a license.”

Librarians Pick Their Favorite Furniture for Teens | Library by Design | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

When remodeling a roller rink to be a branch library, the Scotts Valley Branch Library, CA, was told by its teens that they wanted a space of their own, preferably with a car to sit in. The library couldn’t manage that, but the booths and risers (designed by Group 4 Architecture) have been very popular options, along with Knoll’s Gigi® Swivel Chair...
