Why Doesn't the Library Have This e-Book?

July 29, 2014 by Webmaster

While Lincoln City Libraries tries to maintain a varied collection of books in a variety of formats, not all titles have been published as e-Books, and some publishers so far do not allow libraries to provide access to their e-Books. At the present time, these major publishers either do not allow access to libraries, or do so on a very restricted basis:

Simon & Schuster (includes Free Press, Scribners, Pocket Books, and Atria; Simon & Schuster now makes some e-Books available to libraries, but with significant restrictions)

MacMillan (includes Bloomsbury USA, Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, Henry Holt, Rodale, Picador, St. Martins, Tom Doherty, Forge, and Tor; MacMillan is now making a limited selection of e-Books available to libraries)

Penguin (includes G.P. Putnam & Sons, Grosset & Dunlap, New American Library, Prentice Hall, and Viking Press; Penguin is now making a selection of e-Books available to libraries on a time-limited basis)
