  2. 2. Why- UNC Charlotte experience Mellon Grant Genesis and Overview Principles from UCLA and Macalester Research Teams o Course Use o User Experience o Licensing o Interlibrary Loan o Platforms and Preservation Environmental Scan Over to Theresa, Liz, Steve, John and Terry Discussion 1
  3. 3. UNC Charlotte Faculty Feedback:  I did not realize this is how e-books work.  Now I can warn students in the future not to count on using them for class and I will also make sure to put a hard copy on reserve. 2
  4. 4. Remove non-permanent ebooks Focus on permanent, usable books and promote to Faculty New purchases guided by Three Principles  Irrevocable perpetual access and archival rights.  Unlimited simultaneous users.  Freedom from any Digital Rights Management 3
  5. 5.  Provision of irrevocable perpetual access and archival rights.  Allowance for unlimited simultaneous users.  Freedom from any Digital Rights Management (DRM), including (but not limited to) use of proprietary formats, restricted access to content, or time-limited access terms.  http://guides.library.uncc.edu/charlotteinitiative  * Per Steve Harris, University of Nevada, Reno, ER&L April 2016 4
  6. 6. o Aug. 2014 Don Waters site visit and invitation o Aug. 2014-Jan. 2015 Project Team formed, grant proposal written o May 2015 Grant announced o Sept. 2015 First meeting of Working Group o Jan. 2016 Research Teams launched o Sept. 2016 Second meeting of Working Group o Spring 2017 Open Conference; Final Report 5

  8. 8. • The data suggests that not all libraries are accepting their heritage role. • They are not planning for long term preservation and access for their growing licensed digital collections and resources. • They rely increasingly on third parties to perform this fundamental function. This shift may have far reaching implications for long term preservation and access to the world's knowledge and cultural and historical record. -- Sharon Farb, UCLA, First Monday 2006 7
  9. 9. “Like Minded Institutions” for Collaboration o Representing 13 libraries o Four library consortia o Three university presses o One non-profit vendor- Project Muse o Variety of size and types of libraries, roles in library, geographical range, consortial membership o Discussions conducted under the Chatham House Rule (without attribution) 8

  12. 12.  Proposed at September WG meeting  Does ILL of print books impact P and E sales for university press books?  Develop procedure to collect statistics from ILLiaD  Challenges ◦ Open search in publisher name ◦ Identify ISBN stem ◦ Poor quality MARC records metadata for ISBN ◦ Expense?- Good news
  13. 13.  Focus on Business Models, Pricing and Terms  Promote adoption of principles to publishers  Iterative process o Literature review o Survey (Volunteers?) o Supplemental interviews o Share findings with Working Group and Research Teams o Share interim results publicly o Re-survey, re-interview  Use Market pressure, findings, and time to change behavior

  15. 15.  Licensing Principles (Steve Cohn, Theresa Liedtka ◦ Interlibrary Loan  User Experience (UX),  Course Use  Platforms and Preservation (Kate Davis and Will Wakeling) And  Environmental Scan (project consultant)
  16. 16.  Macalester College http://www.macalester.edu/library/changingebooksfor libraries/advocacy/  Oberlin Group http://www.oberlingroup.org/node/14801  University of California System/UCLA http://www.library.ucla.edu/about/collections/collectio n-development-initiatives/e-book-value-statement 15
  17. 17.  Scholarly Communication  UCLA scholars expect and need the ability to borrow e-books via interlibrary loan, in a way that is comparable to historic educational usage of print interlibrary loan. Conversely, the UCLA Library must be able to loan e-books to other institutions as part of its scholarly mission.  UCLA users routinely engage in scholarly sharing with their students and colleagues, and licenses must not hinder that practice.
  18. 18.  http://www.library.ucla.edu/about/collections/coll ection-development-initiatives/e-book-value- statement  Licenses must not infringe on fair use (17 U.S.C. § 107).  Faculty, students, and researchers need and expect access to e-book content for course reserves, course management systems, and course packs.  The use of an e-book for a course reading requires that it be simultaneously accessible by an unlimited number of users.  E-books must maintain the integrity and consistency of scholarly content with print.
  19. 19.  E-Book Rights Advocacy  http://www.macalester.edu/library/changin gebooksforlibraries/advocacy/  In order for libraries to carry out their long- standing missions of building collections for use and sharing over time for their communities and the public good, it is imperative that e-book restrictions set by publishers and vendors change.
  20. 20. For updates and further information on the initiative please see our web pages at: http://guides.library.uncc.edu/Char lotteinitiative The grant will support a free public conference Date TBA, March/April 2017 in Charlotte to report findings and investigations and invite wide feedback.
  21. 21.  Kate Davis, OCUL/Scholars Portal, co-leader  Will Wakeling, Northeastern University, co-leader  Not in grant; recommendation from WG Sept 2015  8 members Charge  Investigate current alternatives for digital preservation of ebooks collection in academic libraries and outline the strengths and weaknesses of each ◦ 3rd party options like Portico and CLOCKSS/LOCKSS ◦ Commercially hosted platforms ◦ Non-profit platforms
  22. 22. o Co-chairs Steve Cohn, Duke University Press and o Theresa Liedtka, Univ of Tennessee, Chattanooga o Examine role of licenses to govern use and access to ebooks, in light of existing copyright laws and protections. o Analyze current case law, white papers, and other literature o Review applications of the doctrine of First Sale in the digital environment o Compare findings to current licensing practice 21
  23. 23. Existing literature on patron satisfaction with eBooks in academic settings does not differentiate between platforms, formats, and other conditions that alter the user’s ability to read, annotate, and use eBooks Goal: evaluate the existing research published and use this to develop consistent guidelines to accurately assess patron satisfaction in consideration of the various formats and platforms of eBooks in their collections content. Intend to design research for replication. 22
  24. 24. • What are schools doing that we don’t already know about? • What textbooks are most commonly assigned and how can libraries work together to make the important content in these books available freely to students? • What options are their for libraries to provide course texts to their students? • Can we create a best practices and/or a toolkit for libraries that are interested in implementing similar programs? • What publishers can we work with on creating models for purchasing textbook content?
  25. 25. Charge (continued)  Create a checklist for evaluation of platforms.  Begin an inventory of platform options used by various consortia and individual libraries  Sketch what libraries would need in order to create their own preservation platforms in terms of technical infrastructure, metadata and licensing  Articulate how these platform might fit into the larger preservation ecosystem.
  26. 26. ILL? If STL is not the solution, what is? ◦ Model policy on print; unavailable locally? Promoting course assignments, Yes Cutting into course adoptions- Yikes ◦ Allow exceptions ◦ Upcharge for use over x amount? ◦ Special course use pricing $200-$250 for unlimited UPeC model-sufficient collection purchases, loss of course adoption sales won’t matter Link to user purchase options-Google Books 25
