Data: Baker & Taylor’s collectionHQ Expands Collection Development Tools for Ebooks
From Baker & Taylor:
[B&T/collectionHQ] has announced that many of its popular, evidence-based tools available for print and A/V titles are now available for ebooks as well. The addition of these tools, called the ebook module, means that for the first time, librarians can easily access data that compare ebook and print holdings. The ebook capabilities are included in the cost of a collectionHQ subscription.
By expanding into ebook data, collectionHQ allows users to spot trends in their ebook collections. For instance, they can measure how ebooks perform across platforms and identify performance patterns by format. Librarians can use this additional information on patrons’ ereading behavior to help make better-informed spending decisions on electronic and print materials.
