Curious about the future of E-books and how Middlebury might expand its offerings?
LIS has had demos from 3 of the major e-book vendors and we now have trials to explore their platforms on our own. If you are curious and have the time, take a look at each before the trials end and submit feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first two are IP-based and don’t require a password. For the 3rd one, contact any librarian for the login info. In all likelihood we will set up a patron-driven purchase plan with one of these (similar to what we did with netLibrary – load records for the titles in MIDCAT, but a purchase only happens if a title is actually used by our users). The links for these trials are at go/trials or Library homepage -> Research -> New & Trial Databases http://www.middlebury.edu/academics/lib/research/db-newtrial
