Ebooks are becoming increasingly unaffordable, unsustainable and inaccessible for academic libraries to purchase. Our education must be accessible and fully funded! Support by signing their open letter, sharing this round and reading about the campaign
We need an investigation into academic ebook publishing, at a minimum, students deserve access to the key reading needed for their course & libraries should not be priced out of obtaining these resources #StudentsDeserveBetter Sign the open letter
Ultimately, we are fighting this campaign for our students and we very much look forward to working together with students’ unions in the future to see this issue addressed.
