      IFLA
      launches principles, research and advice for eLending in Libraries
      IFLA
      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.

      In
      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.

      The
      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.
