Canada: CBC’s “The National” Airs Segment About eBooks and Public Libraries (Video)

Posted on February 6, 2012 by

CBC’s national news broadcast aired a three minute report last night about accessing ebooks in Canadian libraries.

The report discusses:

  • How library ebooks work including a mention (not by name) of a “company in Ohio”
  • Comments from an e-book/library user who says that if she reads a book and likes it she’ll, “probably go out an buy it.” Btw, she’s uses a Kobo ereader.
  • Issues with publishers (we’ve heard them before) but interestingly not one of the “big six” publisher would talk with the CBC reporter.
  • Jane Pyper, Toronto City Librarian provides a comment
