Task force on E-Books (archived)

On the request of EBLIDA Executive Committee, a Task Force on E-books has been set up in May 2012.

Its aimes and goals were to help evaluating the situation with regards to E-books, keeping in contact with experts, going forward in the direction of communication and dissemination and motivate people to take action.

Dissolution of EBLIDA Task force on E-Books

At the Executive Committee (EC) meeting in Valencia on 22 and 23 February 2016, Members of the Executive Committee decided to disband the E-book Task force
since the issue of e-book and e-lending is now taken over by EC members directly.

As a consequence, EBLIDA Executive Committee decided to dissolve the Task force on E-Books at the end of February 2016.
