Title: eBooks in Law Libraries: A survey of national trends
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4604/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
Description:
The future is here. Law libraries are already providing eBooks to patrons on a daily basis. In fall 2014, the St. Mary's University School of Law's law library conducted a survey on U.S. law libraries' current use of eBooks, defined to include treatises in databases, online access codes and CDs that come with print books, open access materials including online government documents, as well as eBooks platforms like Overdrive and Thompson Reuters' Proview. This session will present results of the study, with a focus on what has worked to provide access to each type of eBook, in differently resourced libraries.

Title: eTextbooks at UNCC : a new approach
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4606/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
Description:
With the rising cost of textbooks for students, the library has the ability ease these costs by providing unlimited user, DRM-free access to etextbooks. Providing faculty with a list of ebooks that can be used in coursework, they can create unique reading lists at no additional cost to the student.
