This webinar provides an in-depth discussion of the complex—and often conflicting—imperatives that drive library acquisitions models and university press ebook publishing. It brings together librarians, university press representatives, and academic publishing professionals to discuss the findings of a five-year pilot project De Gruyter ran with Princeton, Harvard, and Columbia University Presses along with LYRASIS and ten academic libraries. The pilot project provides a sustainable business model for the easy acquisition of eBooks that are free of DRM with multi-user access and perpetual rights.
