IFLA Releases “Principles for Library eLending” Document Along With New eLending Info Web Pages
IFLA is pleased to launch a new set of resources relating to eBooks and libraries. Providing access to eBooks is one of the most pressing issues facing libraries right now.
IFLA has previously issued a background paper on eLending during 2012, and is now building on this paper to launch a new official policy document ‘IFLA Principles for Library eLending’ which was endorsed by the Governing Board in February 2013.
The plan is to build on these resources during 2013 and expand the amount of information available. The Principles will be discussed at the MLAS Seminar on eBooks in Libraries on February 21st 2013 in London.
