    Can they
    Browse the collection?
    Get books as needed?
    Get older books?
  • 21. Impact on Libraries
    What about ILL?
    Blur between ILL/Acquisitions
    eBook rental replaces ILL?
    What about Collections of Record?
    Are we still building collections, or are we just buying books?
  • 22. Impact on Librarians
    More time for harder selection?
    Less connection to collection?
  • 23. Implications for Scholarly Publishing
    Less predictable
    Reduced frontlist sales?
    Increased backlist sales?
    Fewer copies sold per title?
    Higher cost per title?
    Fewer titles published?
    Better ebook sales?

    eBooks
    Multiple aggregators
    Inconsistent coverage
    Inconsistent DRM
    Publisher platforms
    Print books
    “On Demand” = “by mail”
    Speculative purchasing for many titles
  • 27. The Ideal Model
    All scholarly monographs available e/POD
    Aggregator or publisher
    POD in library
    Speculative purchasing
    Rare/unusual
