Ebook Lending Model Changing
Macmillan US has announced changes to their ebook lending terms. Below is a summary of the changes that will take effect on November 1, 2019:
For the first 8 weeks from an ebook’s publication date, a library can purchase 1 unit only, under the One Copy/One User model (a Frontlist reserve copy). The cost of this unit will be $30.00 USD.
After the first 8 weeks of an ebook’s publication (Frontlist), a library can purchase additional copies under the Metered Access model for a 2-year term limit. The price for these units will be $60.00 USD per unit.
After 1 year from an ebook’s publication (Backlist), a library can purchase additional copies under the Metered Access model of a 2-year term limit. The price for these units will be $40.00 USD per unit.
These term changes will apply to public, academic, corporate and special libraries. They will not apply to K-12 schools.
These terms apply to the Macmillan US ebook catalog titles in all applicable territories but exclude global-specific ebook catalogs, such as Pan Macmillan.
There will be no changes to the lending terms for audiobook titles. Audiobook titles will remain available in the One Copy/One user model.

Incomplete Catalog Records
If you receive items from Baker & Taylor or Brodart whose brief catalog records have not been updated from the order record, please let Chris know. If a full MARC record is available, we can overlay the existing record with it.
You can usually identify these records easily, as their information is limited, and there are usually no subject headings, like this:
It has enough information for the vendor to order it, but not enough for library staff and patrons to locate it easily in the OPAC. Often, the titles are from small presses, or from other countries (Australia, Canada, U.K., etc.), or are self-published.
Since the technical services staff loads MARC records from vendors in large batches, we don’t see each individual record. We often load files of 100 or more records at the same time.
We need your help to identify and correct these records. A short email list of ISBN, author and title, sent to Chris usually gets them corrected within 48 hours.
