29 Libraries Boycott Harber Collins

UHLS to Boycott Major Publisher’s E-books
Albany, NY - The Upper Hudson Library System (UHLS) announced today that the 29 public libraries serving Albany and Rensselaer Counties have decided to boycott all future electronic content purchases from HarperCollins Publishers, one of the world’s largest publishing houses.   The decision to boycott is in reaction to a recent HarperCollins policy change in the sale of their e-book titles that establishes a license limit of 26 checkouts per title on all e-books purchased for library use.
