  • OSU to Shawnee StateCase Western Reserve to Mercy Theological SeminarySinclair to Hocking
  • In fact, sharing of print collections is the founding principle an institution must agree to in order to be an OhioLINK member
  • Many OhioLINK members are purchasing e-books, establishing DDA plans, etc. Pressure to do more to obtain ebooks for the consortia
  • Probably don’t have enough history yet to do an in-depth analysis of use.Note: growth in use over time Use of channels makes tracking institutional use difficult in a union catalog environment
  • Cambridge came in late, so we don’t have a lot of use. Counter stats don’t compare well to ebrary stats.
  • Meeting Their Demand: E-Book Purchasing from Consortial and Institutional Perspectives

    1. 1. Beyond Demand-Driven: Incorporating Multiple Tools in a Consortial Collection Strategy Karen Wilhoit, Wright State University
    2. 2. OhioLINK Is: • 90 Member Libraries • • • • 16 public universities 50 private colleges 23 community and technical colleges State Library of Ohio • Over 600,000 Students, Faculty, and Staff
    3. 3. OhioLINK Has: • A History of Cooperative Collection Development • Most members use YBP as a primary vendor • Selectors use GOBI and the OhioLINK central catalog to minimize duplication in our print collections • A Tradition of Sharing Resources • Member libraries’ print collections are a shared state resource • In 2012, “P-CIRC” delivered over 600,000 itmes at a cost of just under $ 1 million
    4. 4. E-Books Don’t Fit the OhioLINK Model Because: AN INDIVIDUAL INSTITUTION’S PURCHASES (TYPICALLY) CAN’T BE SHARED
    5. 5. E-Books: The OhioLINK Response (A History) • DDA: • NetLibrary • Rental: • Safari • Purchase: • Oxford Scholarship Online • Springer • Wiley
    6. 6. ITN Issued April 2011 • Aimed to“Explore Mechanisms to Purchase E-book Content That Would Be Made Available to All Consortium Members.” • Combined Community Funds to Create a Funding Pool • YBP/Ebrary Response Led to the Development of the Current OhioLINK Pilot Project
    7. 7. Pilot Vision: • E-books Purchased Must Be Available to All Consortium Members • Unlimited Use • Multiple Publishers • Profiled Selection • DDA component
    8. 8. Pilot Implementation: • Three Publishers • Ashgate/Gower (ebrary platform) • Rowman & Littlefield/Altamira/Scarecrow (ebrary platform) • Cambridge (publisher platform) • Three Collecting Methods • Subject-based purchase • Profile-based purchase • DDA
    9. 9. Purchases to Date: • Profiled Purchases: • Ashgate: 180 titles • Rowman & Littlefield: 75 titles • Cambridge: 66 titles • DDA Pool: • Ashgate: 117 titles; 19 purchases • Rowman & Littlefield: 88 titles; 24 purchases • Cambridge: not yet implemented

    12. 12. Next Steps: • Evaluation of Pilot Project • Usage • Expense • Comparison with other OhioLINK e-book packages • Possible continuation, modification or expansion of pilot • • • • DDA only? No DDA? Profiling method? Incorporate short-term loans? New publishers? Additional subject areas?
