Why don't you have the eBook or audio book version of a title
I'd like to read or listen to?
Not all eBooks or audio books are available for purchase by libraries because some
of the largest publishers have chosen not to sell eBooks or audio books to libraries.
If you don't see a popular or best selling title in our Digital Downloads, it isn't
because we've overlooked it. The eBook or audio book
isn't there because we are unable to purchase it.
View the American Library Association's "E-books
and Libraries FAQ" (http://www.ala.org/transforminglibraries/frequently-asked-questions-e-books-us-libraries) for more information about the largest publishers, some of
the authors they represent, and whether or not they sell eBooks to libraries.
What are libraries doing about it?
What can you do about it?
- We've voiced our concerns with our vendors and the publishers.
- Groups like the American Library Association have met with the largest publishers
and advocated for fair access to eBooks for libraries.
