Abstract

The University of Auckland Library has over 80 e-book databases and nearly 350,000 e-books listed in the Library catalogue alone. Over the last ten years e-books have proven to be an excellent support for teaching and learning, and they have altered the ways the Library provides services.However, managing this vast number of e-books is not easy.The variety of purchase models that vendors offer, varying formats of e-books, obtaining bibliographic records, bibliographic control, and choosing avenues to provide access, are just some of the problems the Library has to deal with.This paper looks into both positive and negative experiences with e-books and discusses solutions found by the University of Auckland Library.
