With funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Ithaka S+R is studying academic library acquisitions data. Although our initial interest was the changing market share of book vendors, and especially Amazon, we are gathering a wealth of data that is permitting us to address a variety of additional questions. In this session, researchers will preview pilot findings, seek input on the types of additional analysis that would be helpful to ARL members, and solicit participation beyond the pilot phase.
