The library’s e-book collections provide important content for teaching, learning and research.
UC CDC recently endorsed the UC Libraries EBook Value Statement which will provide guidance as UC librarians select resources and negotiate ebook packages with suppliers. The statement is intended to “help shape the scholarly publishing landscape in ways that are responsive to the needs of our primary users and that enable us to be effective stewards of our libraries’ collections funds” (UC Libraries, 2013).
