Libraries, e-Lending and the Future of Public Access to Digital Content, Prepared by Civic Agenda, International Federation of Library Associations and Institutes (IFLA)

  • “Owing to the maturity of the e-book market in Europe and North America, this paper necessarily depends upon numerous examples which are drawn from those territories. In a document of this length it was judged that a focus on the most topical and recent examples was more strategically viable than attempting to cover the full spectrum of all international activity. In addition, for the same reasons, this paper concentrates on access to digital content within the context of trade publishing as opposed to scholarly publishing where digital distribution through libraries is the norm.”
