Florida signs statewide contract for academic libraries

The Library Journal are reporting:

In what may be a harbinger of future consolidated buying deals, Florida academic libraries are embarking on a mission to build a collaboratively developed core collection of print and ebooks to serve libraries across the state. Providing the opt-in platform for the effort is Ingram Content Company book supplier Coutts, which recently nabbed the title of "Statewide Primary Academic Book Supplier" for the state of Florida.
Some 68 institutions and 829,000 students are potentially covered by the agreement, including the Florida College System, the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida, and the State University of Florida system.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
