Subject: E-Book Strategies: CNI Exec. Roundtable Report

To: <CNI-ANNOUNCE>
A report of the CNI Executive Roundtable E-Book Strategies, held at the CNI Fall 2013 Membership Meeting, is now available:


Background:
E-books are being deployed at scale; libraries are acquiring them as significant parts of their collections and textbooks are moving to digital formats in a variety of settings and models. A wide range of topics related to the use and management of e-books in research, teaching and learning were discussed during two separate convenings of this roundtable. Participants explored the myriad questions that these new directions raise for institutions, the strategies that institutions are using to make choices among the paths available, the stakeholders involved, and the new programs and projects that some CNI members are planning or have implemented.


Held at CNIís membership meetings, CNI Executive Roundtables bring together a group of campus partners, usually senior library and information technology leaders, to discuss a key digital information topic and its strategic implications. The events build on the theme of collaboration that is at the foundation of the Coalition; they serve as a forum for frank, unattributed intra and inter-institutional dialogue on digital information issues and their organizational and strategic implications. In addition, CNI uses roundtable discussions to inform our ongoing program planning process.
