E-books and public libraries in Finland

Hannu Sulin, from the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland has sent us two interesting reports concerning E-books and public libraries in this country:

 E-books for Public Libraries (mainly in English), describing  a model that facilitates publishers’ business practices, enables the payment of royalties to authors and formulates a framework that would enable public libraries to provide high quality domestic literature as e-books to the libraries’ users.

Analysis of the eBook chain and acquisition process (Finnish, with an executive summary in English)

Please, tell us what you think about it!
