UPDATED: Letters to a Young Librarian | When Publishers Attack


UPDATED: News: Book publisher to drop lawsuit against McMaster librarian – Tame the Web (March 4, 2013)

“I feel like Edwin Mellen suing Dale [Askey] is yet another escalation in this increasingly adversarial relationship between publishers and librarians.” via Letters to a Young Librarian: When Publishers Attack.

The ALA President Maureen Sullivan responded today to this lawsuit.

As a recent MLIS graduate and future librarian, I will be following this lawsuit closely. In my opinion, publishers/presses have bigger (re: Amazon) concerns to focus their resources on than suing librarians for libel.
