As cataloging departments see decreases in staff resources but increases in the number of online titles requiring access for users, they are forced to consider new ways of managing catalog records and making material discoverable. This presentation covers the current ebook landscape, how discovery and access challenges can be met, and how the future landscape can be formed to better meet the needs of users. The presentation reviews how the University of Calgary and Royal Roads University facilitate discovery and access to ebooks currently. It also presents the results of a broader survey of access management techniques in academic libraries across Canada and the United States.
