Keep Calm and Carry On: eBook Success @ Undergraduate Libraries

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The question is no longer whether undergraduate libraries are expected to provide eBooks for students, but how best to manage these collections without the luxury of the resources and staff of larger libraries.  From sorting through all the different models available to scaling traditional acquisition processes for large digital collections, how can a library avoid becoming overwhelmed by eBooks?

Panelists Mary Barbosa-Jerez of St. Olaf College, Cathy Goodwin of Coastal Carolina University, and Roberta Schwartz of Bowdoin College will share their experiences and success with eBooks in their libraries.
