Publisher Restrictions, or Why Don't You Have the eBook I Want?
Wondering why we don't have certain popular authors or titles? Getting eBooks to library users is getting more difficult. Many publishers will not sell their eBooks to libraries. Random House recently tripled its eBook prices for libraries, Penguin requires Kindle users to transfer eBooks via USB, and Penguin has stopped selling new eBooks to libraries. For more information and what you can do to change this, see eBooks for Libraries and The Big 6 from the Kansas State Library.
