Librarians Talk Boycott over E-Book Lending Limits

PW reports that the Harper Collins 26 loans per e-book title has triggered massive unhappiness among librarians and talk of an HC boycott. The BoycottHarperCollins site is up and running. BHC has a sample letter of protest for Brian Murray at HarperCollins. Among the letter's salient points: "The increasing popularity of ebooks is giving libraries a chance to reach people in new ways, continuing to spread literacy and engender a love of reading……For that reason, I cannot see myself purchasing books or ebooks from HarperCollins or any of its imprints until you stop your policy of causing library materials to self-destruct."
