The Book Publishers Association of Alberta is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar: ELending: A Case for Endorsement presented by Sharon Day. The presentation examines the “ELending Position Paper: A Case for Endorsement” compiled by Readers First.
Neither libraries nor publishers are satisfied with the license terms currently applied to books in eFormats. We are not in agreement on what availability models and prices are fair, in part because we are still breaking new ground with these formats, their capabilities, and how to measure success. This position paper, by Readers First Working Group member Carmi Parker, proposes a single licensing model that aligns with print but optionally enables the unique capabilities of eLending: perpetual licenses and concurrent use.
This event is free and limited to members of the BPAA.
