The University of Southern Mississippi recently began ordering e-books through their primary book vendor, Midwest Library Service. This is a new service offered by Midwest beginning in 2016. The University of Southern Mississippi had previously ordered e-books with another book vendor, but within the last two years had switched to ordering directly with the e-book vendors - Ebook Library and Ebrary. Jennifer Culley, Collection Management and Acquisitions Librarian at The University of Southern Mississippi, will discuss the process for adding this new service, issues along the way, any possible benefits or costs, and also discuss changes to work flows for the Acquisitions department. Cindy Human, Regional Manager with Midwest Library Service, will explain the software changes and steps taken to make this new service work for The University of Southern Mississippi. This presentation will describe the collaborative process between The University of Southern Mississippi Libraries and Midwest Library Service in setting up the new e-book service and will be informative for the audience who may be considering adding a similar feature with their book vendors, or give participants who want to discuss their issues or experiences a forum to do so.
