16 Learned to date-  Selection pool of 705 titles (discovery records)  397 unique titles had been used  Of those, 143 titles had been purchased by the BLC  Total SUPO list price of books purchased via pilot (includes multiple copies) = $114,413  Funds spent by BLC for those books = $58,963  Data as of March 14, 2013

18 Next steps-  Continue the project as Phase 2  Call for participants from BLC sent out May 7  Hope is that 7 charter institutions will continue to participate and that at least 2-3 new participants will join the fun!  On the content side, we have asked ebrary to explore expanding our publisher partner list, maybe 2-3 more publishers to add more diverse content to the selection pool  Phase 2 to begin July 1, 2013  Continue to gather data – analyze to tease out best practice for a shared ebook pricing model

19 Equitable pricing model

20 Everybody wins – BLC, ebrary, YBP, OCLC, publishers and most important – our users
