Abstract or Summary
  • For the last two and a half years, OSU Libraries & Press (OSUL&P) circulated Kindle ereaders as a way to offer our students and faculty a popular reading collection. Although all OSU students, faculty and staff can get a card at the local public library just blocks from campus, our collection continuously shows high demand. From an initial staff-selected collection of about 60 titles the collection has grown to over 600 largely patron-selected titles and consistently has a filled wait list; clearly this niche service has found an audience! So, why ditch our Kindles in favor of…tablets? Come find out how we re-envision this service and hear preliminary results of this new tablet lending program.
