The ReadersFirst Working Group has put together the first edition of a resource to help librarians in assessing the major library e-book distributors' platforms and their adoption of ReadersFirst principles and APIs.
These evaluations draw from self-reported surveys completed by distributors' representatives and submitted to ReadersFirst in spring 2013. The evaluative criteria are based on the Content Access Requirements set forth by ReadersFirst in January 2013 and presented to library vendors (e-book distributors, ILS vendors, etc.) at the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle. You can read the complete ReadersFirst Guide to Library E-Book Vendors or for a high-level summary, read the report's press release.
