For those not already familiar with HarperCollins’ new policy, the company recently announced that they would be placing a cap on the number of times that a library can circular an e-book purchased from HarperCollins. After twenty-six circulations, the library is required to purchase a new license. The policy has sparked backlash from a number of libraries in both Canada and the United States.
