A case study is presented of efforts to coordinate a university-wide approach to etextbooks including library guidance for academics, a tool for keeping track of etextbooks in use across the university and some examples of best practise. These include working with procurement, academic support unit managers and other key stakeholders to ensure that a joined-up approach is taken, etextbook value for money is properly assessed and alternatives to etextbook provision are given due consideration.
