10,000 Libraries, 4 Years: A Large-Scale Study of Ebook Usage and How You Can Use the Data to Move Forward

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Michael Levine-Clark and Kari Paulson to examine 4 years of data from ebrary and EBL covering well over a half a million titles. We'll show broad usage patterns across 10,000+ libraries globally and establish benchmarks useful to libraries and consortia for local planning.

This is never-before-shared data from ebrary and EBL. The data will be thoroughly analyzed in a forthcoming white paper, and we will ask for audience input to help us further shape that study.

Summary of findings:
   Levels of usage by subject area
   Trends by date of publication
   Patterns by publisher type
Suggestions for further research on the topic (audience participation encouraged)
