New: "U. of California Libraries Academic e-Book Usage Survey Report"

Via California Digital Library E-Mail:

In a period of economic challenges, the University of California Libraries must have high quality information and analysis to guide their collection decisions. A new report, UC Libraries Academic e-Book Usage Survey, presents the results of a 2010 survey of 2,569 University of California faculty, staff, and students intended to assist the Libraries in developing systemwide strategies for acquiring e-books and inform future collection management activities. The study was a collaborative effort between California Digital Library staff and UC campus librarians undertaken as part of the Libraries’ Springer e-Book Pilot Project. Topics covered include UC reader preference for e-books as compared to print books, valued e-book features, and an assessment of UC reader experiences with Springer e-books during 2009 and 2010.
