Boston Library Consortium Chooses ebrary, Inc. and Yankee Book Peddler, Inc. for Patron Driven Acquisition E-book Pilot
Oct 2 12
The Boston Library Consortium (BLC) has partnered with ebrary, Inc. and Yankee Book Peddler, Inc., to make it easier and more affordable for its member libraries to acquire authoritative e-books from publishers including Princeton University Press, Wiley, and Brill. Participating BLC member libraries are now offering seamless access to titles eligible for Consortium-wide purchasing automated through YBP. In the patron/demand-driven acquisition model, titles are only purchased based on real usage from the end-user. Patron driven acquisition is key to ebrary's strategic approach to e-book acquisition based on three steps: Transition, Diversify, and Streamline(TM). The growing number of libraries that are transitioning from print to digital books can achieve the greatest return on investment by diversifying acquisition models and streamlining the ordering process through YBP. Students and faculty from participating BLC members are now able to select and identify titles for their access, while the Consortium makes the actual purchase. Access to purchased titles is shared among all participating members and those member libraries that already have patron driven acquisition with ebrary can continue to run individual programs. ebrary's consortia PDA solution eliminates the potential issue of duplicative purchases and their short-term loan model can also be used in conjunction with the program for added mediation. The ebrary platform includes the following key features and benefits: Dedicated apps for iPad(R), iPhone(R), iPod touch(R) and Android(TM); infoTools(TM), which turns words into portals to additional knowledge online; granular usage statistics; multiple search and navigation options; chapter ranking of search results; personal bookshelves; highlighting and annotating; text-to-hyperlinks; text-to-speech; automatic citations; interface in multiple languages. YBP's demand-driven acquisitions service includes the following key features and benefits: consideration pool based on profiling from YBP, or all available content from ebrary; additional titles can be manually added to your DDA repository on a title-by-title basis; free browse period; short-term loans; duplication control across all formats (digital and print); basic and enhanced cataloging records; usage statistics available; activity and expenditure reports in GOBI3.
