Subject: [digilib_india] FYI | IFLA launches principles, research and advice for eLending in Libraries
launches principles, research and advice for eLending in Libraries
is pleased to launch a new set of resources relating to eBooks and libraries.
Providing access to eBooks is one of the most pressing issues facing libraries
right now. Public libraries, in particular, are dealing with implications of
rapidly changing business and access models. IFLA has previously issued a background
paper on eLending during 2012, and is now building on this paper to launch
a new official policy document 'IFLA
Principles for Library eLending' which was endorsed by the Governing Board
in February 2013.
addition, the new webpages contain links to the background paper, and a
commissioned thinkpiece on eBooks in
libraries, both of which are intended to further the debate around the
subject and provide interested colleagues with further information. There are
links to existing campaigns on eBooks, and further details on how to get
involved in IFLA's work on the issue.
plan is to build on these resources during 2013 and expand the amount of
information available. The Principles will be discussed at the MLAS
Seminar on eBooks in Libraries on February 21st 2013 in London.
