The State of E-Lending in Canada

This year, at Technology Forum we spent some time getting to know our librarian partners better. We shared information and found new ways to collaborate. This is why I brought Susan Renouf and Ken Roberts in to give an information session on March 6th about the state of e-lending in Canada.

Anyone who has been paying the slightest attention to industry news has noticed the flare ups over e-lending in the US, but how many people know what’s going on at home? Susan and Ken co-chair a committee led by eBOUND Canada and CULC to find a more effective e-lending solution in Canada. In this video they tell us what hasn’t been working, what are the emerging digital trends in libraries and show us the Canadian pilot project they’re working on for the industry that will handle selling ebooks to libraries directly and involve several other process and tech improvements for the benefit of all players.
