dc.description.abstractSince our limited collection budget could not support the purchase of textbooks on an annual basis, we applied for a small grant from our institute’s Auxiliary Services Corporation, and were awarded $5000 for this purpose in the summer of 2017. Altogether we purchased 46 textbooks during the 2017-18 academic year. The initiative proved so popular that the Student Government Utica awarded us $2000 to continue the next year, and we also were given another $2000 from Auxiliary Services. Remarkably, though, it wasn’t the texts that we purchased that were the most heavily used. Ebooks already in the library collection, made easily discoverable through our extensive textbook marketing campaign, were used most often.en_US
