The practice of acquiring ebooks and managing them within the collection is complex. Through survey results and a review of the literature, this report attempts to measure the significance of the ebook format within the collection, the procedures and preferences academic libraries have for acquiring ebooks, and the perceptions librarians have of the acquisition and management workflows. This survey and white paper aim to provide empirical context around the factors that are having the most influence on the way academic libraries acquire and integrate ebooks into their collections.
