Libraries and e-books
from Book View Cafe (blog)
It can be just as fast and easy to order an e-book from the library as to buy it online, and it costs nothing. Why would anyone buy an e-book from the publisher if the library has it for free? So why would a publisher sell e-books to libraries? This is a legitimate, big problem, which affects authors just as much and as directly as it does libraries and publishers. It has no quick fix. To solve it will take a complete and painful rethinking and re-organization of the whole publishing industry.
