E-books: Are we on the same page?

Libraries are making great efforts acquiring,maintaining, and promoting electronic book (e-book) collections; therefore, understanding what preference users have regarding e-books will help with current and future collection development decisions. For librarians to provide e-book resources and services effectively, a thorough understanding of faculty, staff, and student e-book needs and preferences is needed. A campus-wide online survey was conducted to gather this much-needed data. As the Walter W. Stiern Library at California State University, Bakersfield,moves toward a broader integrated print and electronic acquisition model, it needs to ensure that its users’ information needs are being met.
