Libraries, book publishers and authors have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship since the invention of movable type and, well, libraries. MacMillan, one of the major book publishers, is planning to put a major crimp in that relationship beginning November 1st. For details, read the article in industry periodical, Publisher’s Weekly. You can make your voice heard in favor of libraries by digitally signing the petition at the American Library Association web site.
