Patron-Driven Access for E-Books: Have We Finally Found the Solution?
Monday, June 28th, 8:00 – 10:00 am

E-books have been a hot topic at recent library conferences, with animated discussions regarding preferred platforms, delivery methods and purchase models. Publishers are offering their content to libraries on a variety of platforms via many delivery methods with content being available for purchase through different pricing models. Libraries are considering their options, experimenting with pilot projects and purchasing content. Vendors are watching the events unfold in order to provide the appropriate services.

Please join us to hear panelists from various sectors of the library community share their experiences with patron-driven access models for purchase of e-books.

  • Matt Nauman, Academic E-Content Product Manager, YBP Library Services
