E-book Task Force: Charge

How should a large library system like RUL with many undergraduate as well as graduate students and high-level researchers approach the coming tsunami of e-books? What types of books are most suitable to this medium and most useful to our users: books on e-reserves, reference books, scholarly monographs?

Within this overall framework, consider the following:

This task force reflects an outgrowth of concerns from all sectors of the Libraries organization but is formally attached to the Collection Development Council.

We will devote at least $10,000 towards the purchase of current imprint e-books this year. The work of the task force will help determine how this money will be spent. Please submit your report to Robert Sewell by no later than March 15, 2001 in order to give us enough time to set our e-book project in motion this year.

In the course of your deliberations, please consult whenever appropriate with the systems and cataloging departments.
