Study in accessible media delivery in Ontario’s university libraries

“The Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) is commissioning a research study and report on accessible media delivery at Ontario universities. The study will identify a range of service options available to Ontario’s university libraries to ensure fair and equitable access to video collections held at university libraries across the province. The research project, otherwise known as ROAM, the Report on Accessible Media, will document the diverse practices for delivering video media in accessible formats employed at Ontario universities (via OCUL)

OCUL, ACUP/APUC and eBOUND partner to promote Canadian ebook scholarship

“The Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) and twelve members of the Association of Canadian University Presses/Association Des Presses Universitaires Canadiennes (ACUP/APUC), in conjunction with eBOUND Canada have partnered to promote and support the availability of Canadian scholarship in ebook format throughout Ontario’s universities. Innovative in both scope and design, the agreement reached by OCUL, ACUP/APUC and eBOUND Canada will provide access, via OCUL’s Scholars Portal Books platform to a comprehensive collection of over 3,000 ebooks published primarily between 2007-2012.  The agreement also has a roll-forward licensing provision and it is anticipated the volume will grow to a total of nearly 4,000 titles by 2014. This collection, which is comprised of ebooks, almost all of which are not currently owned by the OCUL community, will significantly expand OCUL’s ebook holdings of Canadian scholarly works. The agreement provides OCUL with perpetual ownership and local hosting rights on the Scholars Portal Books platform for all of the content provided.”
