#uklibchat 12th April 2021 – #ebookSOS

If you work with e-books in any capacity, you may well have heard of #ebookSOS – a campaign to raise awareness and instigate change in the pricing, accessibility and functionality of e-books. Rachel Bickley and Caroline Ball will be helping us to lead this Twitter chat and have put these questions together – we’re very grateful!

Read our agenda online and add any questions you’d like to see covered.

The question of e-book pricing and functionality is not new, but it’s been exacerbated over the past 12 months due to the shift to online teaching and learning. Thanks to the efforts of Johanna Anderson and others, this issue has now been covered by outlets such as the BBC and the Guardian. There is also an open letter you can sign – at the time of writing, it has almost 4000 signatures.

You can also take a look at a recent UCL webinar on the topic, including a full recording, Q&As and slide decks.

Stay safe and we’ll see you at @uklibchat in April!
