Delivered as part of the session "Unlocking the Value of the Monograph" at Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L) 15th Annual Conference, Austin, Texas, March 9, 2020.

Scholarly monographs are undergoing a digital transformation that brings new value to both libraries and researchers. This presentation approaches the session theme with a single institution’s view of the digital environment unlocking the value of the scholarly monograph. It builds upon and expands a preliminary appreciation from ER&L 2019 that compared local download activity across ebooks recently acquired via two evidence-based programs at UC San Diego with the lifetime circulation histories of our matching legacy print holdings. This new foray is powered by a 10 times larger study pool of every JSTOR Books title purchased since the inception of our local contract in early 2015, which now includes DDA, EBA, and Pick-and-Mix channels.

Slides 8 & 9 were not presented at ER&L 2020 owing to session time constraints. All script notes and slide transitions are preserved in the supplemental file.
