ALA Helps Librarians Score eBook Licensing Deals

As digital book usage grows in libraries, the ALA has released a new tool to help librarians grade the licensing deals they strike with individual publishers.

AppNewser has all the details:

The American Library Association (ALA) has created a new report to help libraries manage eBook licensing terms, called “The Business Model Scorecard.” The scorecard helps inform librarians about the different variables involved in library eBook license contracts to help them negotiate eBook licensing deals with publishers. The objective is to give public libraries ideas to craft their own contracts. The report breaks down 15 different eBook contract variables for libraries, including factors such as eBook pricing and access to patrons.
