dc.description.abstractInstructors at our university often request electronic copies of texts rather than print, claiming that students prefer the advantages of electronic access. In the 2012 fiscal year, the acquisitions department at our university spent $6.5 million on e-resources. The course reserves unit spent an additional $4,000 towards copyright permissions to post electronic materials which exceed fair use guidelines. With the cost of electronic access to information in mind, in the Fall 2012 semester we ran a survey to assess user preferences. The survey was directed at students in courses which provided both print and electronic access to identical titles, and sought to capture information about the ways students use hard and electronic reserve items, and their format preferences. This presentation will look at the results of our survey, and will be of interest to those working directly and indirectly with course reserves.en_US
