We’re E-Preferred. Why Did We Get That Book in Print?

While California State University, Fullerton’s Pollak Library has an e-preferred approval plan for all subject areas, the Library still continues to receive a number of print titles on approval. However, 25% of the print approval books received in the 2013-14 fiscal year were published by only eight publishers, all of which actively publish their books in e-format. This presentation will investigate the reasons why print books were supplied over potentially available e-versions. In some cases, individual titles were only published in print, while others were available as ebooks, but could only be purchased within collections. Others were available for purchase as individual ebooks, but not via the Library’s primary aggregator. Attendees will be engaged in discussion on what steps could be taken to truly become an e-preferred library despite these inconsistencies.
