WPLC has been discussing strategies for encouraging publishers who won’t sell e-books to libraries to begin doing so. At our May 22 meeting the WPLC Board voted to ask public library systems to encourage their member libraries to provide a link to the webpage below on their own webpages. The page was created by Topeka and Shawnee County Library in Kansas and it does a nice job of explaining why some e-books are simply unavailable in public libraries. It also encourages patrons to contact publishers and ask them to sell to us.
