The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded the Electronic Publishing Initiative at Columbia (EPIC) a cost and usage evaluation grant aimed at gaining a better understanding of how electronic resources affect scholarly communication. In particular, we are interested in how electronic resources are affecting academic presses, administrators, information technology personnel, librarians, faculty, and students. In order to address these questions EPIC is conducting both qualitative and quantitative research including one-on-one interviews, focus groups, web-log analysis, and surveys of the involved parties. This session will discuss the overall goals of this evaluation project, the research methodologies used, and findings to date from librarians, faculty and students.
