WHELF e-books consortium
A year ago WHELF launched a new collaborative e-books service with OCLC. NetLibrary provides 85,000 Welsh students and National Library users with access to over 700 e-book titles.
The consortium has now been given representation on an International Advisory Board to work on future developments to NetLibrary e-books services. Steve Lee from the University of Glamorgan is our representative on the Board. Steve has asked all participating institutions to give responses to a questionnaire from NetLibrary regarding future developments to the e-books service in terms of platforms and other matters. Steve will be forwarding feedback to NetLibrary so that they have a collective Welsh view. There will be regular reports from Steve on any developments in services as these become clear.
