It's taking a while, but at least some libraries and Indy publishers are looking to get into a Win-win situation for them both.
Late last week the Colorado-based Douglas County Libraries announced that they had acquired 10,000 ebook titles from Smashwords, nearly doubling their total number of ebook files owned to 21,000.
This sale was worth around $40,000 in total. It is the single largest sale which Smashwords has made via their Library Direct program, which launched back in August. DCL was one of the initial launch partners, along with Califa and the Open Library.
