Very early on in our campaign we were contacted by senior library figures in Ireland who were keen to express their solidarity and to run a sister campaign. The Irish context is quite different to ours but they face similar problems in terms of ebook pricing and availability. Please read this Libfocus piece written by Cathal McCauley to learn more about their approach and future plans. We would like to thank our Irish colleagues for their support and to congratulate them on what has been achieved so far. As Cathal says in his piece, we will be continuing to collaborate with each other to press on with the drive for change. This ebook issue is an international scandal, not just a local one, and we welcome opportunities to connect with partners from across the globe to robustly advocate for equitable and affordable access to resources for all citizens.
