#eBooksForAll

More than 200,000 people have raised their voices to oppose Macmillan Publishers’ embargo on new eBook titles to public libraries, and ALA has filed its first report with Congress about restrictive licensing and unfair pricing for digital content. Now what?

Join the ALA Public Policy & Advocacy Office and the Public Library Association for an update on the #eBooksForAll campaign, planned next steps with Congress and data gathering to build the library case, and specific actions you can take to advance these efforts. Bring your questions and your front-line experience to inform national planning and communications.

Note: ALA and PLA may not discuss nor provide a forum for discussing a boycott or similar activity based on our tax status.

Please review the technical requirements and support information at http://www.ala.org/pla/education/onlinelearning/zoom.

As a webinar registrant, you will receive follow-up correspondence from PLA specifically related to this webinar (including, but not limited to, instructions for accessing both the live webinar and its archived recording) as well as information about other PLA programs and resources. You may also receive relevant messages from our webinar partner or sponsor (if any). PLA will not sell this webinar’s registration list to any other outside parties. If a webinar sponsor chooses to communicate with you by e-mail, they are obligated to provide you with an opportunity to opt-out from future e-mails in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.
