Online journals have been the preferred format for several years, with most academic libraries favoring online access to print subscriptions. However, the move towards an online-preferred collection development policy for books has not quite reached the same saturation, despite the popularity of options such as DDA and PDA. This session will review the literature on reasons for moving to an online-preferred collection development policy for all resources, including books, and provide information on user preferences, technological and platform hurdles to overcome, and information on current collection development policies for e-books.
