Patron Selection Plans - Overview Selection by the patron – ALL e-books purchased are used. An e-book purchasing option that allows libraries to make five times the amount of content available for patron discovery Create profiles reviewed prior to activation ensuring an in-scope collection Free MARC records Easy administration
Patron Selection Plans – The Process Develop a subject or collection profile with our Collections Consultant. Use this profile to shortlist MyiLibrary e-books that meet your requirements. Remove titles that you already own or dont want to consider. Load these titles into your catalogue for your patrons to use.
Patron Selection Plans – Benefits Make five times the value of your plan available to your patrons, whilst controlling the content that they can select from, avoiding non-relevant material Involve your patrons in the decision making process and greatly increase the value of your catalogue without the cost of purchase Ensure that the e-books you buy are the ones that will be used. Research shows that titles purchased in this way are used SEVEN times as much as other titles
Patron Selection Plans What constitutes an actual e-book purchase? A purchase is triggered when a book is viewed more than once. A view is any time the book is accessed in the MyiLibrary reader. To avoid accidental views, the MyiLibrary interface allows patrons the opportunity to review the book description and table of contents prior to viewing the actual text. Viewing the book description and table of contents do not count toward the view allowance.

How is the library billed for these purchases? The library usually sets aside a fixed amount of funds for MyiLibrary e-book purchases over a renewable program period of six months to one year. This can be done through a deposit account or through a dedicated purchase order. The library will receive monthly statements indicating which titles have been purchased and the amount drawn out of the deposit or billed against the purchase order.
Patron Selection Plans How concerned should I be about spending my funds too quickly? Our experience shows that patrons continue to access only relevant content and dont spend a great deal of time browsing the shelves resulting in irrelevant purchases. As a result, the budget allocated to e-books stays focused on appropriate and relevant content, regardless of the timeframe in which titles are purchased.
Patron Selection Plans But what if I still reach my funding threshold prior to the end of the program? The plan acts as a library budgeting tool. The program parameters do not allow a library to spend beyond the amount allocated by the institution. The library is allowed to refresh or suspend the account if they wish. If suspended, only the non-purchased titles will be deactivated until the library wishes to renew the program.
