We have now collected and published 500 signatures to the open letter. This is a phenomenal result given this is only the first “working” day of the campaign. To quote one respondent “This evidences the current impasse with ebook acquisition in HE libraries. Review and culture shift is definitely required to drive change”
We all want to support our students as best we can. It is unacceptable and distressing that we cannot even provide the basics to our students due to the over-commodification of information and gross profiteering.
Huge thanks to everyone who has supported and promoted this campaign thus far. Please keep sharing the open letter and encouraging all to sign. Please also remember to bring the issue to the attention of your MP. We know of two who have already given us their backing and we are certain there will be more. A storm is building that surely cannot be ignored.
