Fast Tech Talk: Elsevier Online Books

The Quality Connection: Academic researchers define the value of high quality eBooks to facilitate high quality teaching and learning outcomes.

Elsevier recently collected responses from over 10,000 academic researchers at universities in a global user value study to assess the value of online book content in facilitating teaching and learning outcomes. The 2012 study aimed to uncover how today’s academic instructors, researchers, and students view the changing role of publishers and of their own university libraries in providing both quality content and platforms designed to meet their evolving needs. The results point to high-quality, publisher-provided online book content and platform as an essential university library resource. With this data, libraries will be better informed to choose the resources that their patrons want and need most to achieve higher levels of research outcomes and ultimately academic success, which also translates into higher prestige for the university library and its larger institution. Come to this session to learn more about what today’s university patrons hold in high demand. Also, learn more about Elsevier’s ScienceDirect eBooks offerings in 2012 including the growing Frontlist Collection, over 150 Textbooks & Text References, and newly digitized collection of “classics” via the Legacy collection recently released on ScienceDirect.
