European Library Association Launches Campaign to Get Ebooks

One of Europe’s library associations is just as upset about library access to ebooks as its American counterpart and has launched multinational campaign to try for change.


The European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations (EBLIDA) launched its Right to E-Read campaign today, a multi-country effort to bring awareness to readers as to what their options are in terms of reading digitally through libraries and to also let them know the issues libraries have in obtaining ebooks.


The American Library Association, which in a recent report on the state of libraries in America, praised progress libraries and publishers have made in trading ebooks over the past year but lamenting progress yet to be made.
