The library’s current Evidence Based Acquisition (EBA) eBook project, which involved making tens of thousands of new eBook titles available for customer discovery in Library OneSearch, has entered its selection phase (during which the library decides which titles will be bought outright in perpetuity, and which will be withdrawn from the collection). This selection process has begun, following the conclusion of the discovery phase of the project at the end of April.
While final selections are agreed, the following sets of eBook titles have been suspended from discovery in Library OneSearch:
- Bloomsbury (2,013 titles)
- Cambridge University Press (30,391 titles)
- Sage (4,306 titles)
- Oxford Scholarship Online (11,812 titles)
EBA eBook titles which have been added to resource lists during the discovery phase should still continue to be accessible through the links provided in the RLMS.
Once title selections have been confirmed for each provider, the purchased titles will updated and made discoverable once again in Library OneSearch.
The Wiley EBA package (consisting of 17,879 titles) will continue to be active until the end of May.
