Analysis benefits of e books

Analysis: Benefits of E-Books

  • Increases availability & access to content

    • Simultaneous users

    • Elimination of theft

    • Patrons can access remotely

  • Saves space in building/no storage

  • Convenient access

    • Full text searching

    • Potential for mobility (handheld readers)


Analysis the e book landscape

Analysis: The E Book Landscape

  • Small % available electronically—15% of books that would have come on purchase plan=e

  • Publishers don’t publish simultaneously with print—average delay 5 months

  • Authentication issues—users must log on/extra step

  • DRM restrictions for sharing via ILL

  • Many platforms/many formats


Analysis csu landscape

Analysis: CSU Landscape

  • Over 108,000 e books in library catalog (LC)

  • Many packages: Springer, Safari, NetLibrary, Gale, Knovel, Oxford Online Reference, etc.

  • 3 multipublisher platforms: Ebrary, NetLibrary, and EBL (almost signed)

  • We order individual titles in e; replace lost books in e; order reference titles in e

  • We load free/open access e books


Operationalization priorities

Operationalization/Priorities

  • High: CSUL is working with e vendors. Will add EBL records into catalog for selected publishers

  • High: Alliance working with EBL and other e vendors to get discounts/share titles purchased by Alliance members

  • Low/Medium: Print on Demand—Espresso Machine, Springer model

    • Potential revenue stream for bookstore or library

  • High: TF on E book publicity established and working on FAQ’s, other publicity


Operationalization priorities1

Operationalization/Priorities

  • High: Increase access to additional e books via citation linker (SFX) (underway)

  • Medium: additional exploration for new e book products, including e texts & library/bookstore role

  • Medium: additional exploration into Print on Demand via Espresso Machine in cooperation with Alliance.


Pondering the future e book market still unpredictable

Pondering the future: e book market still unpredictable

  • Publishers not uniformly responsive to new models and simultaneous publishing

  • Will there be a simpler model combining multiple platforms/predictable pricing/standard licensing/standard formats?

  • User interfaces need work/Authentication simplified via Shibboleth?


Questions

Questions

  • Will users accept e books in all disciplines? * How do we support/help users?

  • What new workflows needed?

  • Will POD be used? Espresso machines? Effect on ILL?

  • What impact will reader devices have, will there be a standard?

  • Will the library have a role with e-textbooks? Or with Bookstore?
