Public libraries continue to experience restrictive licensing models and prohibitive pricing for ebooks purchased from many of the top publishing firms. Some require libraries to repurchase titles in order to renew access after only 2 years, while others deny access to libraries for titles up to 3 months after their release date. This puts library users at a disadvantage and does not ensure all Canadians have equitable access to digital resources. Learn more and sign the petition demanding fair access at #ebooksforall and #eContentForLibraries.
