Development of ebooks in the Max Planck Society
SummaryEbooks are gaining increasingly more importance among the researchers in the Max Planck Society. The Max Planck Digital Library meets this demand by negotiating central ebook licenses as well as framework agreements with publishers that provide conditions for individual ebook purchases by Max Planck libraries. This strategy was developed in an ebook working group within the Max Planck Society. The licensed ebook titles are accessible via a special Max Planck ebook catalog.
