This is a TAL offering for JSTOR ebooks. There are two options presented; ebook subject sets available as a one time purhcase or Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA). Individual ebook titles may also be ordered through TAL.
Books at JSTOR offers more than 49,000 ebooks from renowned scholarly publishers, integrated with journals and primary sources on JSTOR's easy-to-use platform.
All titles offered in Books at JSTOR are available exclusively in a DRM-free, unlimited-user model. The ebooks work just like the journals on JSTOR, with unlimited simultaneous use, downloads, and printing, and no need to log in or use special software. This creates an outstanding user experience for researchers.
Subject collections are available in core disciplines that see high usage on JSTOR. The collections include 900 titles published in 2016. They include:
Discounts are based on the number of subject sets purchased.
In the DDA model, acquisitions are determined by patron usage, so your library will never pay for an ebook that will go unused. Here's how it works:
You will build a profile of titles to make available to users at your institution. This can include all the titles available from Books at JSTOR, or a subset based on such parameters as publisher, discipline, publication date, or maximum price.
These titles appear in search results and may be viewed and downloaded the same way as ebooks acquired through firm orders.
When usage of a title reaches the threshold of 4 chapter downloads or 6 chapter views, a purchase is triggered and the institution's deposit account is debited the price of the title. Once a title is triggered, the library will have perpetual access to the ebook on JSTOR.
All usage below the trigger is free.
If you are interested in purchasing subject sets or DDA, please contact Christa Foley at TAL. A March 24th deadline was given for those wishing to purchase immediately with year end funds but other joins past March 24th may be accommodated.
Hosting Fee: There is technically a hosting fee it is waived for purchases through a consortium. This fee is also waived for institutions who are already participants in the JSTOR archive journal collections.
