Reminder: CARLI Collection Management Committee’s Survey on Open-Access eBooks Closes Feb. 28

(via Elizabeth Clarage, CARLI)

This survey will close on Wednesday, February 28th. Thank you to those that have already completed the survey. On average, this survey takes 3 minutes to complete.

The CARLI Collection Management Committee is exploring the availability of Open Access eBooks and their corresponding cataloging records. Open Access eBooks refers to academic monographs that are made freely available for use and distribution online. The committee is interested in what Open Access eBooks would CARLI member libraries like to see available to all libraries using I-Share and eventually through OCLC Collection Manager to all CARLI members.

All CARLI members are encouraged to complete the survey so there is an accurate representation of the entire consortium even if your institution does not currently select or add Open Access eBooks to your local catalog.

Thank you for completing the survey to help the committee understand current practices and interest in this topic within the CARLI membership. If you have any questions, please email CARLI Support at support@carli.illinois.edu.
