    An Analysis of EBook Equivalent Coverage at The College of New Jersey Library

    This presentation details the methodology of a study which compared the eBook offerings of major aggregators with circulation data and patron ILL requests. The results were examined from both a subject and imprint date perspective.  Attendees will be presented with a tool to help them make more informed decisions regarding eBook collecting and learn that eBooks may meet only a fraction of the demand for monographic scholarly output. They will also be given a quantitative basis for deciding which subjects are best served by a strategy of patron driven acquisitions.
