Integrating ebooks into a library can be a challenge, not just technically, but also from a collection development perspective. Blackwell can help you overcome these challenges in order to develop a compelling and sustainable ebook collection that complements existing print acquisition policies. With our in-depth knowledge of developing print collection plans, we have created a new service that helps libraries create a comprehensive ‘blueprint’ for ebook collections. Whether a library is only interested in a limited adoption of ebooks or a fullscale implementation, Blackwell’s Digital

Advertising Critical Readings 4 Vol. Set Edited by Brian Moeran

Services team can provide solutions to the following questions: • How can a library quickly build a critical mass of ebooks that matches current collecting priorities? • In what subject areas should ebooks be consistently preferred over print editions? • How and where should patron driven acquisition technology be utilized? • Which ebook aggregators are most appropriate from administrative and patron standpoints? Ultimately, effectively integrating ebooks into a library’s acquisition mainstream will greatly benefit patrons, reduce strain on the acquisition budget, and has significant potential to streamline internal processes. Simply send an email to digital@blackwell. com or your Regional Sales Manager to start the ebook collection development planning process.

‘Advertising: Critical Readings’ brings together the key writings – drawing on both journals and books – to present an authoritative and comprehensive survey of the field.
