This session will describe how the Michael Schwartz Library has included licensed e-books as part of its course material affordability efforts. The presenters will discuss how the program is implemented to faculty and students, the technical workflow and collaboration between the library and campus bookstore operation, and how the program has been integrated more tightly into the library’s and university’s affordability program. The presentation will also outline the important role of communication to faculty and students who can benefit from the program. Attendees who would like to replicate the program will receive an example process to follow, as well as recommendations for starting, assessing, and promoting a similar program, and advice about possible challenges and implications to consider. This presentation is best suited to an audience that is just beginning to consider incorporating library-licensed e-books into their course material affordability strategy.
