EBLIDA (The European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations) is calling for a change to the European legislation which prevents libraries from lending a large proportion of their resources in eBook format.
From their website:
“Libraries guarantee free access to content, information, and culture for all European citizens. However, in the digital environment, the current legal framework prevents libraries from fulfilling these essential services to our society, especially regarding the provision of e-books.
European citizens have the right to e-read! This should also be the case in libraries. It should therefore be possible for libraries to legally provide their users with access to all commercially available e-books.”
