11 E- BOOKS IN FINNISH LIBRARIES  E-books are borrowed in many Finnish libraries, mostly via Ellibs –service, but not in great quantities, no new titles.  There are far more non-fiction than fiction e-books.  Bigger libraries lend out also e-book devices either with or without content.  Helsinki and Oulu libraries among others have lent Samsung tablets which contain titles published by CrimeTime publishing house in cooperation with ElisaKirja (telephone operator)  Other reading devices have been lent without content around Finland Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto

12 ELECTRONIC RESOURCES PROJECTS IN HELSINKI  2005: Ellibs  : net music services under consideration, for example Sony service  2009: digital texts and reading devices were studied ; the project received subsidies from the Ministry of Education and culture in order to examine the net disseminating of music and texts via the Internet  Both projects continued in 2010, Electronic resources for the public libraries –project was launched and it also became a part of the electronic resources for public libraries project under the United Nations patronage Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 12

13 EVOLVING COOPERATION  Negotiations with Sony in 2008 did not result in agreement  Negotiations with The Finnish Broadcastin Company concerning radio plays fell through due to the broadcasting company’s organisational restructuring.  Funding for the digital texts and e-reading devices for the library use was applied from the Ministry of Education and the project received the funding  A major e-book meeting convened in January 2010 which included publishers, National Library, Ministry of Education and Culture, booksellers, writer / author organisations etc. In sum, all important actors in book publishing Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 13

14 THE TIME WAS NOT RIPE!  The participants came to the conclusion that it was an important issue but that the time for e-book was not ripe in Finland!  However, e-book markets were discussed in connection with the Next Media project but the library was excluded from the project despite the fact that we asked to be included in the project.  A year later a major publisher together with book supplier contacted us and we organised a joint meeting Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 14

15 PROGRESS IN 2011  Library field’s own taskforce: Digital resources for public libraries in an effort to create understanding within the library field in order to recognise the challenges in the whole of Finland, and later as a training project to support the consortium  Negotiations for distributing e-books directly via borrowable reading devices: in cooperation with ElisaKirja, Samsung and Crime Time publishers Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 15

16 NEXT MEDIA PROJECT: E-BOOKS FOR LIBRARIES  From beginning of 2012 Helsinki City Library was invited to participate in the new phase of Next Media project: E-books for libraries. National Library was put in charge of the project, but the day-to-day development work has been done by Helsinki City Library together with Ellibs-service, VTT(Technical Research Centre of Finland) and Aalto University.  Also some publishers and book delivers are cooperating with us Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 16

17 EBIB From a national eReading project evolved eBib pilot study / experiment 35 new titles by Otava for lending purposes Experiments with browser reading Experiments with licensing models and the distribution of metadata Testing and development of user interface Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 17

18 FORWARD IN COOPERATION!  EReading project resulted in good channels for cooperation with the whole literary field: publishers, and through publishing consortium such big publishers as Otava and Bonnier participated in the project.  We have frankly told the publishers of our limitations but at the same time told them that we understand their revenue models Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 18

19 Together we studied both usability factors as well as licensing and pricing models Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 19

20 DIFFERING POINTS OF VIEW Publishers seek a system in which:  Monitoring of royalty payments and  lending rights is easy Libraries seeks a system in which:  costs don’t escalate uncontrollably and  total price does not exceed that of printed materials  materials can be managed and controlled: lending rights (licences) can be granted and cancelled Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 20

21 E-BOOK PROJECTS  2012: Overdrive, English language books  2012: Next Media EReading, Ebib, Otava and Edita books, including experiments with browser reading  2012: Cooperation with Samsung, ELISA and CrimeTime, borrowable tablets in Oulu and Helsinki  2013: EReading together with eBib project will continue, licensing models will be studied as well as social reading and dissemination of metadata  2013: Cooperation with Elisa company will continue at least in terms of a digital reading circle Helsingin kaupunginkirjasto 21
