NEW YORK (AP) - Another major publisher has expanded its library e-book offerings.

Hachette Book Group, which publishes Stephenie Meyer and Malcolm Gladwell among others, announced Wednesday that after two years of pilot programs it will offer its entire e-catalog to libraries. New books will be available simultaneously in paper and e-editions, a policy also recently adapted by Penguin Group (USA). Hachette, Penguin and other publishers had previously restricted newer works out of concern for lost sales.

Last month, Simon & Schuster ended its policy of withholding all e-books from libraries and announced a pilot program. A second former holdout, Macmillan, announced a pilot program in January.
