Canadian Library Association e-Books Task Force Report and Recommendations

Last fall, the Canadian Library Association (CLA) established an e-Book Task Force with membership representing a broad range of sectors and geographic regions, including public libraries, academic libraries, consortia, and publishers.

Its terms of reference were to:
  1. Identify, collect, analyse and share information on what is currently being done with respect to e-books, as defined by the task force;
  2. Develop recommendations on which existing overarching principles could be adopted by CLA as well as recommend which overarching principles that CLA could/should be develop;
  3. Identify and recommend potential advocacy roles and strategies related to the above and to the e-book issues that face the library and information community.
