Teaching, learning and research looks very different than it did just a few years ago. Students and researchers continue to expect more and more from academic libraries - including access to course materials like textbooks that may otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable. Meeting those expectations requires a lot of reimagining, not only from libraries, but from the partners and publishers who support them. This webinar will introduce never-seen-before models that deliver e-textbooks to the users who need them most.
Attend this webinar to hear how ProQuest, part of Clarivate, is collaborating with textbook publishers and librarians on a new model that provides supplemental access to required e-textbooks through the library. Juleah Swanson, Acquisitions and Accounting Section Lead from University of Colorado Boulder and Beth Thomas, Collection Development from Montgomery College - both who are purchasing course reserve copies of e-textbooks will share what impact they've seen at their institutions.
You'll learn about:
- How a new e-textbook model empowers libraries to achieve their mission of providing equitable access to students
- How offering e-textbook leverages the library's investment in electronic collections
- Trends in e-textbook usage prior to and during the pandemic & how that usage compares to monographs
