PCG is proud to announce that a new white paper recently produced in partnership with Springer is now available for download. This paper, titled Scholarly eBooks: Best Practices to Encourage High Usage” presents common marketing strategies to help libraries build a connection with end-users and promote their eBooks and other online resources.

We aim to point librarians to tools that will help create a bigger and more effective system of communication. This information is also interesting for publishers consistently hearing that low usage, and in particular cost-per-use, is a major factor in the cancellation of resources. What tools can you provide to help your customers improve usage for your publications?

PCG conducted a number of in-depth interviews with institutional librarians to understand different approaches to successful promotion. We present several common marketing strategies and provide 5 recommended actions for libraries looking to encourage high usage of their eBooks.
