The Power of Partnership — Digital Collections for Academic Consortia
In a world where students are on their computers and mobile devices 24/7, academic librarians know that digital content is the way of the future - but is there a way to provide titles without breaking the bank? With consortium collections, member libraries share resources, giving students and faculty access to the same library of digital content all on one platform. In this eye-opening session, Christina Virden from Missouri’s MOBIUS consortium and Jeff Brunner from the Wisconsin Academic Library eBook Consortium share their personal experiences establishing and growing a digital consortium, and OverDrive’s Lindsey Levinsohn provides information on getting started. Whether you’re an existing consortium wanting to increase reach or a group of stand-alone libraries looking to join forces, this webinar is for you!
