American Library Association Annual Conference
June 21-26, 2012
eBooks are becoming a preferred format for many libraries; however, acquiring eBooks on an approval plan can be challenging. This presentation will discuss how two university libraries have partnered with approval plan vendors to integrate “e” (eBook) and “p” (print book) acquisition into approval profiles. Presenters will describe the challenges of managing eBook selection and acquisition, discuss how libraries and approval vendors deal with evolving publishing patterns, and suggest strategies for acquiring eBooks as a preferred format.
