Oct. 26, 2017

Aiping Chen-Gaffey, associate professor, library bibliographic services and Heather Getsay, assistant professor, library resource acquisitions, have authored the book "Measuring the Validity of Usage Reports Provided by E-Book Vendors: Emerging Research and Opportunities." 

The book was published by IGI Global, a company that specializes in research publications for education, social science, library science, healthcare, business, environmental science, public administration, computer science and engineering. 

In the book, Chen-Gaffey and Getsay examine the current practices and trends in usage reporting provided by vendors of electronic publications. They offer recommendations for further refinement of this system in order to present the most accurate, non-biased information about electronic publications.
