The eBook Conundrum

I guess I haven't been paying enough attention. It turns out that not only has Harper Collins declared they want to limit public libraries who purchase eBooks from them to limit the check-outs to 26.

It turns out that two major publishers (Macmillan and Simon & Schuster) will not sell any eBooks to public libraries. According to something I read recently that makes "more than 25% of the eBook market unavailable to library patrons".

You can read more about it HERE in Library Journal.
