E-Book Program Development Study: Annual Report (June 1, 2013 - May 31, 2014)

Goertzen, Melissa J.

This report summarizes the preliminary results of the first year of the E-Book Program Development Study. The objective of the first year was to document the e-book landscape at Columbia University (CU) and understand how current challenges fit into the larger context of collection development within the academic community. The second objective was to develop sustainable methodologies that can be used across CU to evaluate e-book holdings in a standardized fashion. The work completed over the past year provides a context for study results and suggests how e-book collection aligns with CU's overarching mission to support research, teaching, and learning activities across campus.
