Why on earth are they purchasing from Amazon? It is an alleged tax avoider
in this country. There are multiple issues about the treatment of the
workforce in its distribution centres ('Fulfilment Centres'). It refuses
to recognize the GMB union. GMB has organized action at its workplaces (I,
Unite Community, was involved in the action at the Rugeley depot). Is
there no morality left? Why don't you use an alternative supplier?
Indignantly,
Dave Postles

Primary Research Group Inc. has published: Academic Library Use of Amazon,
ISBN 978-157440-550-7

The 100-page study presents data from 68 academic libraries about their
purchases from Amazon, focusing particularly on print books, but covering
also a broad range of materials and commodities including but not limited
to eBooks, videos, audiobooks, archival supplies, library furniture,
office supplies, printer and photocopier supplies, microfilm supplies,
computing devices, CD’s, software, online courses and much more.
.
For the academic library book market the report presents broad market
share data for the major suppliers and then gives detailed information on
the intentions of those surveyed to increase or decrease the percentage of
their book purchases from Amazon in the near future.  Survey participants
also give their advice on how to best use Amazon, and give their opinion
on its most and least appealing characteristics; they also discuss their
extent of use of the company’s services, and plans for the future.  Data
in the report is presented in the aggregate and broken out for public and
private colleges, by general Carnegie class, by level of tuition, and by
student enrollment.

Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

29.41% of libraries surveyed had purchased archival boxes, files, tissue,
boards, slides, albums or other similar archival tools over the past five
years.

Research university libraries in the sample spent a mean of  $7,180 for
eBooks from Amazon in the past year.

More than 88% of colleges sampled charging more than $30,000 per year in
annual tuition had purchased videos from Amazon.

38.1% had purchased computer or printer supplies from Amazon in the past
year, a figure that dropped to 33.33% for libraries with between 10 and 30
employees and then to 21.74% for those with more than 30 employees.

Spending on print books by libraries in the sample increased by 6.11% in
the 2018-19 academic year.
