CREATe eLending Workshop: Access to Digital Knowledge in the Global Library

By 22 June 2023July 12th, 2023No Comments

On the afternoon of Wednesday, 19 July CREATe is hosting a workshop looking at aspects of eLending and access to digital knowledge at Advanced Research Centre, University of Glasgow. This workshop will address key aspects of library lending of eBooks and wider themes relating to digital access to knowledge. Included in the programme will be a presentation by CREATe researchers on The Law and Economics of eLending in Europe. This study, funded by KR21/Arcadia, considers competition law dimensions of eLending by academic and public libraries. We will also be joined by guest speakers and discussants to interrogate, explore and debate key issues at a crucial juncture in the evolution of eLending. As afternoon gives way to early evening, the event will conclude with a performance in the ARC Atrium by Salon Orchester Glasgow, a 10-piece orchestra.

This event is free and open to all, but places are limited. Book your spot here: Icepops 2023 Tickets, Wed, Jul 19, 2023 at 2:30 PM | Eventbrite
