Abstract

The Five College consortium embarked on a large scale demand driven E-book project with EBL and YBP. The core concept of the project was to come up with a common set of titles to display to the consortium as DDA canidates, share in the short term loan cost, but any purchases would be done at institution level. Since purchase were not be done on the behalf of the consortium, specific permission was needed from the publishers. This opened up the potential candidate list to anything carried by EBL. The consortium selected nearly 150,000 candidate titles, which were loaded into the local ALEPH OPAC, and various discovery solutions. The workflow and interactions with EBL and YBP were automated, requiring minimal staff intervention. Data will be present on usage and cost, and a discussion of the publisher short-term loan price increase this summer and how it is affecting the project.
