Liberal arts college library directors ask publishers to ease ebook licensing restrictions

“Library directors at 66 liberal arts colleges on Friday called for academic libraries to reject licensing agreements with publishers that impose restrictions on how ebooks can be accessed and shared. In a statement released by the Oberlin Group, a consortium of 80 liberal arts college libraries, the directors point to the “ecosystem of sharing” that academic libraries at small colleges depend on to plug gaps in the resources they offer — services such as interlibrary loans, for example.” (via Inside Higher Ed)
