Upcoming webinar: Data for ROI and Benchmarking Ebook Collections.
From the webinar description:
“Data is being used to make quick ebooks acquisitions decision changes at a single library and being used in scale to better understand ebook usage globally.
“Ying Zhang will present on a study undertaken at the University of Central Florida to determine the best ROI for their library ebook acquisitions models. Michael Levine-Clark will discuss a large-scale study showing trends across over 10,000 libraries and hundreds of thousands of ebooks. A study of this scale allows us to show broad patterns of usage and establish benchmarks that should prove useful for libraries and consortia for local planning.”
