OverDrive Provides Report on the State of EContent in Academic Libraries

OverDrive shares the results of a Choice survey, “The State of Ebooks in Academic Libraries: 2022” (registration required), which finds that “[a]s academic libraries pivot to meet the needs of a digital-first student population, many libraries are shifting their digital collections to include more popular fiction and nonfiction digital materials.”

The survey shows that 85% of academic libraries have ebooks and e-audiobooks in their collections and that ebook purchasing in most subject areas has increased nearly 26%. In addition, “non-curriculum-based ebooks are a rapidly growing portion of academic library digital collections (79 percent of respondents devote up to 10 percent of their collection to pleasure reading, which is a 14 percent increase from 2020).”

The survey was underwritten by OverDrive Academic. For more information, read the blog post.
