DCL Ebook Report for November 2013

| November 6, 2013


Two things jump out at me in this month’s Douglas County (Colo.) Libraries Ebook Report. Between September 2012 and this report (PDF file), we’ve gone from 30% to 80% availability of ebook titles to libraries. That is most definitely the result of the good work of ALA.

But two areas remain dismal: price and ownership. The average library ebook price is $45–$50 per title, and libraries don’t own any of them, even at those prices.
