New scorecard lets libraries give feedback on e-book offerings from publishers
In an effort to help the relationship between libraries and publishers when it comes to e-books, the American Library Association recently released a scorecard that asks library staff members to rate e-book offerings from publishers on factors like availability.
The scorecards grade criteria from one to five and include 15 questions. Questions range from the price publishers are charging libraries for e-books to the length of time for which patrons can check them out. They were developed by the ALA Digital Content & Libraries Working Group.
