This paper seeks to determine the extent of e‐book availability and how existing e‐books might meet library needs as defined by monograph circulation.
This study identified highly circulated print titles and searched for e‐book versions available from aggregators or publishers.
The results indicate inadequate coverage levels to allow for a discontinuance of print purchasing, but offer clues as to where e‐books might have the greatest impact in this library's collection plans.
The paper introduces a method whereby libraries may determine where e‐book collections best meets user needs.
