After the initial pilot project ended, the EBTF performed a substantial analysis of the program and deemed it to be a success based on its initial goals.
In December 2014, the EBTF began discussions with JSTOR about its new ebook model for consortial DDA.
Although the EBTF considered a fee based on budgets, it was determined that FTE was more predictive of usage as supported by preliminary purchase data from the first iteration of the program.
The EBTF continued to discuss and review usage statistics in an attempt to determine whether and how best to integrate a usage component into the contribution formula.
Five EBTF members discuss logistical issues and provide regular feedback to shape the program, representing the interests of staff at more than 50 libraries.
