The library and e-books

The Swedish Library Association (Svensk Biblioteksforening) released the brochure The Library and E-Books (English version), outlining the current situation around ebooks and libraries in Sweden, listing some key principle for the supply of ebooks to libraries, and advocating for a sustainable remuneration model.

More information on the proposed remuneration model is available on the association’s website (in Swedish, but plays well with translation widgets). There is also a more detailed position paper, released June 2012, which seems to only exist in a Swedish language version.
