The Nunavut Library Association has added its voice to those advocating for a fair e-book pricing system for libraries. The campaign was launched by the Canadian Library Association and a number of partners on June 15, 2015. NLA has sent a letter of concern to Nunavut Minister of Culture and Heritage George Kuksuk, and received a reply indicating that the matter is being considered by federal, provincial and territorial ministers and that his department will keep NLA informed of developments. More details and all the correspondence are posted to the “Fair ebook Prices” campaign 2015 page on our website.
This issue is critical to the future of libraries and readers’ access to information. For more information, check out the Fair Ebook Prices website. For those who tweet, check out #FairEbookPrices.
