We are seeking feedback from colleges on titles submitted for the second phase of the e-books for FE project.
We are delighted to announce that thanks to funding from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, an additional collection of 60 books will be made available to FE colleges free of charge from the end of April 2010. We have received 250 titles from 3 publishers and we would like FE colleges to evaluate the titles submitted to create a shortlist of 60 e-textbooks.
You can vote for as many or as few titles as you wish, and although as many representatives (e.g. colleagues from different departments) can vote from a college, we will collate those votes so that there is a maximum of 1 vote per title per college.
JISC Collections will pay for access based on the number of pages viewed so that we will only pay for titles that are used. The maximum amount we will pay for each title is capped, to ensure that funds are not spent prematurely on a handful of titles.
All titles included in the second round are available under unlimited, simultaneous user access (any number of users can access the same title at the same time).
