In case you were wondering, the ALA is not pleased.  “Libraries must have fair and equitable access to resources, regardless of format, that is predictable and sustainable,” said ALA president Wanda Brown in a statement. “In the months ahead, ALA will amplify its role in championing the valuable and essential role of libraries in the publishing ecosystem. For example, we are re-establishing the Digital Content Working Group to focus and bolster our efforts. Librarians across the country have increasing consternation about e-book access. The high prices and complexity across publishers are only growing.”
