Learning Objectives

better understand how e-books are used across multiple libraries, determine how best to build e-book collections


This large-scale study demonstrates e-book usage trends across over 10,000 libraries. With four years of data, and a large number of titles (570,918 from ebrary, 350,000 from EBL) we can show broad patterns of usage and establish benchmarks that should prove useful for libraries and consortia for local planning.
