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

Over the past two years, Boston College has engaged in a number of e-book programs, some based on staff selection and others using patron-driven selection models. This session will report on a recent assessment done by the e-book task force at Boston College and will include comparisons of usage across staff and patron selected individual titles and packages. The question of “what data is meaningful and useful” will be discussed as will ways in which Boston College has worked to streamline internal workflows to maximize access to and delivery of e-book content. Susan Stearns from Ex Libris will close with an update on ways in which cloud-based community services can further streamline the work of individual libraries and provide more useful analytics for evaluation.
