BC Books Online

Ha! This looks very promising. A new initiative between our public libraries, publishers and schools called  BC Books Online. Read more about it here

BC Books Online is collaboration between publishers and libraries to purchase electronic rights to a collection of non-fiction books by BC publishers and to make them accessible through public, school, and post-secondary libraries.  It is the first time ever that publishers and libraries have come together with the objective to deliver digital content to an entire province.

Now my main question is can we see a list of the proposed titles? I am v curious to see what is included. It appears to be only non-fiction. Could a similar proposal be made to acquire digital rights to some of the buried fiction and novels that are out of print and where there are no longer circulating library copies.
