  3. 3. Confusion• One publisher, multiple possibilities • Publisher platform • Aggregator(s) • Which aggregator(s)? • Which model(s)? • Not available in e at all • Permissions • Course adoption • Available in e, but delayed.
  4. 4. One Source• What I want • All e-books available via my preferred vendor • Easy integration into acquisitions and cataloging workflow• But I’ll take • Easy method to identify which e-book is with which aggregator
  5. 5. Format• What I want • Easy to purchase e or p or both • Always know that the other format is available, and when, and where
  6. 6. Versions• What I want • Easy to identify alternate versions/vendors • Someone (publisher, YBP, both) to tell me that this book will be available from which aggregators, and when.
  7. 7. Multiple Purchase Models• The more the better • Title-by-title • Package • DDA • STL • Purchase • Subscription • Perpetual access
  8. 8. The Ideal• Every book in every format, from every aggregator.• As easy as buying a physical book• As easy as buying a Kindle e-book
