2. Collection Development & Assessment


eTextbooks, eBooks, faculty/ student outreach, collection development

Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will be able to examine new principles and techniques for purchasing ebooks, explore ways to provide and promote additional services to faculty and students, review strategies for assessment of unique products.


With the rising cost of textbooks for students, the library has the ability ease these costs by providing unlimited user, DRM-free access to etextbooks.  Providing faculty with a list of ebooks that can be used in coursework, they can create unique reading lists at no additional cost to the student.
