Penguin Suspends E-Book Availability to Libraries

In a move that has surprised some, Penguin Book Group has announced today that it would "delay the availability of new e-books to libraries" their reason was security.

The question now is who will follow Penguin and what does this mean for libraries? Penguin said;

“Penguin’s aim is to always connect writers and readers, and with that goal in mind, we remain committed to working closely with our business partners and the library community to forge a distribution model that is secure and viable,”

Penguin e-books already in a library’s catalog will remain available to users. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens next.
