If you are a published author in the UK you ought to be registered for PLR - it means you get a small payment if your book is borrowed from a UK library.

A couple of interesting points from the stats. One is that though funding dropped from £6.9M last year to £6.6M this, payment per loan went up from 6.2p to 6.66p - reflecting a significant fall in library lending.

The other interesting thing that's always interesting is the how the money is distributed:

UK PLR Payment Distribution

Feb 2015 (2014)

£5,000 - £6,600 281 (297)

£2,500 - £4,999.99 359 (368)

£1,000 - £2,499.99 809 (801)

£500 - £999.99 879 (900)

£100 - £499.99 3,336 (3,405)

£1 - £99.99 16,389 (16,601)

Total Recipients 22,053 (22,372)

Nil or below minimum Threshold 16,996 (15,772)

... it's capped at £6,600 - 190 authors got that, down from 200 the year before.
