Atkins Library Receives Grant for eBook Research

Through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the UNC Charlotte J. Murrey Atkins Library will investigate how best to license and acquire electronic resources for academic libraries. The $271,000 award is a two-year research and planning grant to produce recommendations for the licensing and acquisition of electronic resources, particularly eBooks.

"Academic institutions are moving rapidly from print to electronic books," said Joan Lorden, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at UNC Charlotte. “UNC Charlotte, with the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will explore the impact this shift has on the long-term survival, use and licensing of eBooks."
