equitable access, textbook affordability, etextbook, library-sourced ebooks
This was a presentation for the 2022 Electronic Resources & Libraries Conference. Presentation abstract: Libraries are used to shoestring budgets, but well-funded projects present unique challenges. At UCF, a department outside the library (Multicultural Academic and Support Services) earmarked funds for eBooks used as textbooks. We worked together to communicate limitations on eBook licensing, user models, availability, and the best way to reach students.
