Libraries meet MEPs to talk about copyright

A delegation representing European research libraries has visited the European Parliament to lobby for better access to information.

Liber and Eblida, two groups representing academic and public libraries, met with Sylvie Guillaume, a social-democratic MEP for France, on 5 November. Guillaume sits on the Parliament’s culture and education committee.

The library groups said that copyright laws should be amended to enable researchers to better access information. In the age of e-books, libraries need more rights to take control of their responsibilities in collecting and disseminating information, the groups said.
