Macmillan Publishing Delays eBook Access
Macmillan Delay

Due to circumstances beyond our control, you may experience long delays accessing eBooks distributed by Macmillan Publishing.

Despite nationwide opposition, Macmillan has imposed an eight-week embargo on new eBooks available to libraries. Under Macmillan’s new restrictions, a library system may only purchase one copy of a new eBook during its first eight weeks of publication. After the first eight weeks, libraries will be “allowed” to purchase additional copies, but at a premium price.

Under Macmillan’s embargo, not only will access be restricted, but the cost of eBooks will also rise significantly.

The County Library strives to provide you with outstanding library services at an incredible value. Macmillan’s embargo will make this more difficult. We ask that you join us—and libraries across the country—in combating this attack on access to eBooks. Sign the petition at ebooksforall.org to tell Macmillan that access should not be delayed or denied.
