  • Project interests
    -Received 5 responses from survey. Only UCSB has the funding to support a focus group user study. 
    -Due to lack of funding, doing a system wide User survey is more feasible. 

  • User study
  • Current ebook platform evaluation
    • Current packages, evaluation criteria
      • The objective is to come up with a set of most desirable criteria based on our user survey as a way to push publishers toward a more standardized ebook platform.
      • Refer to Ebook Platform Evaluation spreadsheet on Google Doc:
      • ACTION: Chan will reorganize the CDL purchased package (in Existing ebook platforms tab) into different categories (Aggregator, DDA, etc.):
      • TO DO: Members will look at the package list in the Existing ebook platforms tab and add other ebook packages that they would like to include in the study
      • TO DO: Members will look at the evaluation criteria (in the Evaluation Criteria tab) and add more criteria, if they wish.
