Since our presentations on ebook management at past IUGs, one lesson learned is that the process is always evolving. As our academic ebook collections increased in size and complexity, we then added patron driven ebook plans (PDAs,) consortia-wide programs, and migrated to Sierra. The result has been ongoing fine-tuning of our methods to handle record loads from various suppliers and duplication across multiple platforms. With increasing attention on ebooks at our campus, the process needs to be effective. This presentation will highlight the steps we developed, then updated for Sierra, to efficiently administer ebooks, ensuring dependable access for our users.
