The Maine Library Association (MLA) has joined other state library associations in providing information to our library patrons about the issues surrounding eContent accessibility, or lack of, through libraries.
MLA is providing its members with a form letter their library patrons can send to publishers requesting better delivery of digital content through libraries. MLA has also provided a flyer that explains the differing policies of the major publishers regarding selling eBooks and/or eAudiobooks to libraries. Both the sample letter and the flyer are available for download from the Maine Library Association’s website.
Libraries are also encouraged to ask their Board of Trustees to pass a resolution in support of increased access to eBooks for Maine library patrons.
Please feel free to download this information and provide it to your library patrons.
