Popular ebrary ebook titles in 2015-16

The University Library buys many 1-user ebooks on the ebrary platform, their selection is based wholly on user demand. During the academic year 2015-16 1,121 ebooks were triggered for purchase in this way and most of them cater for users needs sufficiently with this 1 concurrent user model. But the ebooks@cambridge team receives regular (sometimes daily) turnaway notifications each time one of the ebrary ebooks denies access to a user or multiple users. These reports help us to discover which ebooks are in demand, and this allows the ebooks team to make sensible choices regarding ‘upgrading’ the popular titles so that they can be used by multiple concurrent users; this can also help relieve the pressure on printed copies. Last academic year this upgrading happened 31 times (thanks to ebooks@cambridge funds), and a list of these popular titles can be found below…
