LIVE has provided statewide ebook access to North Carolina’s public and academic libraries since the early days of NetLibrary. Like most consortia, the licensing approach always included a set number of simultaneous users or ungodly fees for unlimited use. In late 2013, NC LIVE began working with North Carolina’s publishing community to put together a pilot project that will enable the consortium to purchase ebooks in perpetuity while also providing an affordable avenue for unlimited use for all 200 member libraries. Join representatives from NC LIVE, participating publishers, and member libraries who talk about the successes and challenges of heading out Into the great wide open world of ebooks!
