GENERIC E-BOOKS - Advantages • E-Books offer unique functionalities (search and navigation tools) which are unavailable and inapplicable to the print version, i.e. full text searching • E-Books make available content to many people at the same time • E-Books are accessible 24/7 • E-Books offer remote access outside the physical library • E-Books allow for copying and pasting of texts and images • E-Books provide longer terms of physical use. For example, in print, popular encyclopedias, professional and reference books become frayed and fall apart quickly and have to be replaced (additional copies need to be ordered). • E-Books are never lost, stolen or overdue. • E-Books require no shelf space or reshelving.
PRINT MAINTENANCE FACTS: Annual Costs of Book Storage and Access 1. These costs are basedon the cost of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library at the University of Toronto 2. Construction costs are based on the 1999 library construction project at the University at Albany 3. The cost per use is derived by dividing the cost by the number of requests for the year.

GENERIC E-BOOKS – Print versus E-Books • In case studies e-books are used more than print versions of the same title. “In 1999, nearly three times as many scholars clicked on the average online monograph book as circulated its print version.” [Columbia University Online Books Evaluation Project, 1995 to 1999] • In an in-depth research study conducted by Duke University Libraries over a period of 16 moths beginning in 2001, e-books received 11 percent more usage than comparable print books. • Of the titles that were used in print or e-book, 39 percent were used in both formats. • 34 percent were used in e-book only and 27 percent were used in print only suggesting that some patrons were using e-books and print books for different purposes, e.g., and e-book for quick reference, but a print book for intensive reading. • Both e-books and print books were used in proportion to their subject representation in the study. Most top subjects, social sciences, business, and literature were used about as much in print as in e-book format. Titles in education, medicine, psychology, and computers were used more in e-format than in print. Above derived from a report entitled A CIRCULATION ANALYSIS OF PRINT BOOKS AND E-BOOKS IN AN ACADEMIC RESEARCH LIRARY, Justin Littman-Information Technology Specialist, Library of Congress, and Lynn Spilipigni Connaway-Consulting Research Scientist III, OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc.
