The Book Publishers Association of Alberta (BPAA) is working to create a collection of Alberta ebooks for public libraries. Approximately 1200 ebooks will soon be available to Alberta public library patrons for borrowing. Some of our members have works that are now part of this collection. Congratulations to those included in the collection. The books are available at all public library through the website cantookstation.com. Visit your local library for more information.
Public Library Services Branch (PLSB) provided funding which made it possible to licence the ebooks for public use and PLSB has also acquired an online platform to host the collection. Publishers, the BPAA and PLSB worked together to develop innovative licensing terms that, among other things, will allow simultaneous use of books. Ebooks in the new collection will always be available for immediate use by library patrons.
The new ebook collection should be available for public use by the end of 2016.
