“Public libraries to lead initiative to ensure public access to digital content”

In a press release dated 10 July 2012, OCLC announced that it received an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant in the amount of $99,957.00 for a new initiative, “The Big Shift: Advancing Public Library Participation in Our Digital Future.” The purpose of the grant is to more fully understand the challenges that U.S. public libraries face in providing e-book content to borrowers, as they ensure that all Americans continue to have access to commercially produced content through their local public libraries, even as formats change.
