Ebookmobile: Delivering Subject-Specific Ebooks to Your Inbox

Lybarger, Kathryn (2012) Ebookmobile: Delivering Subject-Specific Ebooks to Your Inbox. In: ELUNA 2012, May 9-11, 2012, Salt Lake City, Utah .



Today's users are overloaded by the massive amount of information available to them, even within their own library's collection. Ebooks cataloged in batches of hundreds (or thousands) make a generic new ebook shelf prohibitively large and mostly uninteresting to a subject researcher. The Ebookmobile helps researchers become aware of new ebooks in the library collection in their specific area of interest, so they can start using them immediately. Ebookmobile checks the Voyager database daily for newly cataloged ebooks and creates feeds for ranges in a classification scheme. Researchers can choose to receive a daily e-mail or subscribe to an RSS feed using their e-mail client or feed reader. Subject librarians may include such feeds on LibGuides as self-updating new ebook shelves.
