MLAG / M25 E-Books Survey Results and Proposed Next Steps
Please find attached the summary report of the M25 / MLAG e-books survey which took place in the summer. Also attached is a ‘possible next steps’ document, which has been produced for MLAG and M25 by JISC Collections.
This will be an agenda item at the next MLAG committee meeting (December 15th) where possible next steps will be considered, including the possibility of taking forward a patron-driven acquisition model.
I would like to thank the other members of the Task and Finish Group who have worked on this: John Tuck (Royal Holloway); Kate Price (Surrey University); Anna Grigson (Royal Holloway); and in particular Anna Vernon (JISC Collections) who analysed the returns, compiled the reports and provided a wealth of expertise.
Any comments or feedback ahead of the MLAG committee meeting would be most welcome, either via the MLAG discussion list or blog.
