“…as of October 4, only eight licensed titles (seven are Agatha Christie novels) at New York Public Library (NYPL) had hit HarperCollins’s loan cap introduced in February 2011. NYPL plans to relicense them, and HarperCollins offers a discount on second copies.”
My network boycotted at the beginning, then rescinded it this past year. Is it great? No, but as Michael Kelley points out, it gives libraries access to front-list titles, with options to repurchase, or not.
