Sold for Licenses

Steven R. Harris, “Mortgaging Our Future on Ownership, or, the Pleasures of Renting,” accessed October 31, 2013.

I came across this article, and wanted to include it. Most library literature I’ve come across are more wary of complications with eBooks and switching to the licensing model for acquisitions. Harris, Director of Collections and Acquisitions Services, University of New Mexico, is very forward about why he believes it’s a good way to go, ¬†addressing concerns brought up in the other article that I posted.

This is not my “formal submission” as I only ran across it in PDF form, and don’t know where, ¬†when, or by whom it was published. (Yes, this is my Be-A-Good-Information-Literate-Person disclaimer.) You should be able to access it via a quick Google search.
