Join us for a conversation about ebook acquisition trends and how purchase decisions are being influenced by pricing. We’ll compare acquisition data from Canadian academic libraries with their worldwide peers – and engage live polling to learn more about what matters to local librarians. Finally, we’ll discuss how aggregators are helping to bring more expansive access options to libraries everywhere, making ebooks affordable for all library budgets.
