Policy: “Empowering Libraries and Communities Through Digital Lending (Library Leaders Forum)
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that the need for digital access to books and other materials is more important than ever, but our models for production, distribution, and access are not functioning to meet the needs of this moment for many. For the biggest publishers, book sales are up, and everyone agrees digital is the path forward, but what that means for independent/academic publishers, authors, and libraries is up to us. In this session, librarians, authors, and publishers come together to discuss what’s broken, what’s working, and the policies and practices we need to build a healthy information ecosystem for the 21st Century.
