eBooks: Exploring the Rapidly Evolving Options
As the eBook industry continues to evolve, there are more and more acquisition and collection development options available to libraries, which is a great thing—once you can make sense of them all. Subscribe or purchase? Outright or demand-driven purchase? What about short-term loan and loan-to-own? There are so many variables to explore, and these are just a small handful of the business model considerations available to libraries today.
This special webinar event, hosted by EBSCO, will address key points to consider when navigating eBook business models, and will also take a closer look at other options, including ordering services (e.g., EBSCOhost Collection Manager, GOBI and OASIS), eBook providers, user experience, digital preservation and much more.
