ReadersFirst Initiative

Two weeks ago we presented The Right to e-Read project. Today, another initiative relating to e-books in libraries: the ReadersFirst movement tackles the problem of quality control for e-content distributors, describing some principles and translating them into specifications that will ensure best service.

The ReadersFirst Coalition is a network of over 285 library systems serving 198 millions of readers from the United States mainly, though it’s an international project: in Europe, they have already two members: the French Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication and Stockholm Public Library.

Please, tell us what you think about it!
