A Guide to Publishers in the Library Ebook Market

If you have been following the recent developments in the eBook market, you are probably aware of the many discussions regarding the ebook library lending policies of the Big Six publishers. The latest being ALA’s calls on Random House to reconsider major ebook price increase. See also “Librarians Feel Sticker Shock as Price for Random House Ebooks Rises as Much as 300 Percent”.

In the midst of all this, I find The Digital Shift‘s brief compilation of publishers in the library ebook marketplace useful for sharing, especially for those who are still “shopping around” or testing with ebooks.

This article “A Guide to Publishers in the Library Ebook Market” provides you with a good starting place as to who’s who and what’s available in the ebook market.
