Acquisitions considerations

In the summer of 2011, several members of the E-Book Committee put together a tool that could help librarians as they work to acquire e-books for their collections. The full list of issues to consider is available as a download. The major categories included are:

  • Platform type
  • Available acquisition models
  • Users
  • Use
  • Formats
  • ADA
  • Administration

The list of questions to consider was created by Stefanie Havelka (LE), Linda Roccos (formerly of SI), Michael Waldman (BB), and Angela Sidman (formerly of OLS).
