Why is eBook lending important?
The SUNY eBook Lending Project is a collaboration between Proquest and SUNY, designed to develop processes for lending eBook titles to users from any SUNY campus who has chosen to participate in the pilot. Traditionally, eBooks purchased by a campus would only be available for that campus's students, faculty, and staff, but this project opens that up to allow any participating campus's users to borrow selective titles owned by other campuses. Not all books will be available across SUNY: the pilot is limited to publishers who have agreed to participate in the pilot.
The following campuses have agreed to participate in this pilot project:
The following publishers are participating in the project:
Because of challenges with routing eBook requests through Alma Resource Sharing and ILLiad, SUNY Library Services will be filling requests for most of the participating campuses. This is a departure from traditional campus-managed interlibrary loan, and may lead to some questions and confusion for the end user.
