I’d like to ask that we raise with the ALA a request for them to add criteria to their awards especially the YMA’s that included ebook ‘accessibility’ in terns of cost and license model.

I understand the Access v Accessibility distinction you bring up. I have been out of the US for 7 years so some terms have changed :)
Michael Blackwell
34:24
Agreed--let's move this
Stephen Spohn
34:25
No worries! Please do share in ALA Connect. That’s an important idea that you’re forwarding!
Veronda Pitchford
34:43
so when you refer to access to award winners i presume you are referring to access outside the US as well, yes?
Danielle Plumer (TX)
35:09
The terminology is always confusing, but the accessibility assembly (formerly in ASGLA also) is pretty firm on making the distinction.

Happy to report out for Amigos: In November 2020, we added our 100th SimplyE-hosted library: www.amigos.org/node/6617Continuing to work with the Texas State Library (TSLAC) on their E-Read Texas service, which focuses on providing ebook & audiobook content using the SimplyE app to the smaller public libraries in the state.Finished TSLAC/IMLS grant in August which 1) provided base level functionality for hosting library-created or library-purchased content for SimplyE; and 2) created an initial set of promotional and instructional materials for library staff to use with patrons, including 2 overview videos.Working with our first academic SimplyE library using SAML for authentication.

Hi scott!
Danielle Plumer (TX)

The Texas E-Read Program did a pilot this spring that folks might be interested in. Biblioboard was able to negotiate an eight-week unlimited simultaneous access agreement with Harper Collins for a statewide book read on Butterfly Yellow. The book was available on the web and through SimplyE for libraries that have it. It was moderately successful and we're trying to expand it for our spring Read Across Texas program, with additional publishers in addition to HarperCollins.
Micah May
48:56
Thanks Danielle! DPLA can also help facilitate special simultaious use licensing for bookclubs or other promotional events from HarperCollins and others. Let us know if we can help!
Danielle Plumer (TX)
50:42
Micah, thanks. The web access is an important access so until that web reader is available in SimplyE we're limited.
