Overdrive eBooks & Harper Collins

Many of you heard about Overdrive’s memo and their statement that there is one publisher who is planning on limiting eBook checkouts.  That publisher has turned out to be Harper Collins and naturally many libraries are questioning how this will affect their eBook purchasing and lending.  Overdrive has put out a reaction on their blog which you can read here:

As eBooks are a new format for GMLC and we are still working out how to best build this collection I invite all the consortium members to please let the board know your feelings on this topic.  Please feel free to comment on this post or send an email to vtaudiobooks gmail.com
