A Message from the President...
June 2012 e-Bulletin President’s Report, from Matt Bollerman
Digital content seems to be in the forefront of many in libraryland these days, and NYLA is trying to help. In February, a letter was sent to the New York State Attorney General asking them to look into the way digital content is being sold to libraries. A meeting is scheduled in mid-June with NYLA Members and the AG’s office. We are hoping members of the ALA Digital Content Working Group can attend as well.
