This poster describes a project we undertook to review how our purchasing patterns have changed since we set up licenses with e-book vendors through GOBI four years ago. While we knew which liaisons were initially most interested in purchasing e-books, after setting up the licenses we had not gathered any follow up data about what selection decisions liaisons were making. We wanted to see what data we could compile on this, and we were particularly interested in identifying subject areas in which a real mix of e-books and print were being purchased which we could examine to compare print circulation and e-book usage of purchased titles. The objective of the poster is to show what data we were able to gather, what aspects of this study proved more challenging than initially expected, and how we're hoping to use our findings to shape internal conversations about e-book purchasing.
