JSTOR at ALA Midwinter: Ebook trends and insights

Date: Sunday, January 27, 2019

Location: Sheraton Seattle Hotel, 1400 6th Avenue, Ravenna Room (3rd floor)

Join us for an afternoon coffee break and engaging discussion at ALA Midwinter. Jee Davis of Villanova University will share her library’s successes and challenges with ebook acquisition, including Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA) and Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA). We’ll also share the results we’ve seen across all our library participants, including usage data showing how Open Access and new acquisition models are providing value to libraries and researchers, as well as a survey of our participants on their experiences with EBA.

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, so we’re looking forward to a lively conversation! Coffee and cookies will be served.
