Chen-Gaffey and Getsay author library case study


Aiping Chen-Gaffey and Heather Getsay, Slippery Rock University Library faculty members, have co-authored the article "More E-Books, Less Print? What Does Usage Data Tell Us?"

The article appears in the peer-reviewed journal, Library Collections, Acquisitions and Technical Services. The piece analyzes one academic library's usage data for both electronic and print books over a five-year period (2011-2015) in order to gain insights into usage patterns, trends, user preferences and behaviors between print and electronic format.

The article was also selected as a featured article by Informed Librarian Online for its January 2017 issue.
