Summary:

Academic libraries include e-book publisher packages, or eCollections, in their collection development strategies for a variety of reasons. Discounts and the quality and quantity of content make them an attractive and practical way to acquire a critical mass of e-books and provide a base of content in a specific subject area. But there are other pieces to the eCollections puzzle. How do eCollections fit within your e-book acquisition strategy? What if your library already owns or has access to some of the titles in the collection? How is your workflow affected by managing eCollections from multiple publishers?

Attend this webinar to hear about the benefits and challenges of ordering eCollections from the academic librarian’s perspective and ways that library services vendors can help manage these collections.
