Librarians must stand rock solid against any proposition that would imperil the libraries’ unlimited circulation of e-books.
The principle that has always applied to printed book purchases must be applied to e-books. There is no reason we can’t subject e-book licenses to that condition.
I urge all librarians to not enter into licenses with Harper-Collins or any other publisher that wants to limit the number of library circulations.
