Abstract: As the number of publication and collection of e-books increases, universities in Taiwan tend to join consortia to purchase e-books. Through joint collections of e-books, universities can reduce the costs of e-books and lessen the burden of storage. Furthermore, the participation assists to achieve the goal of building together and sharing together. Hence, this paper reviews the history of Taiwan e-books consortia. And we take 2007 Chinese e-books consortium as an example to explain the motivations and collection strategies of different universities. We analyze the cost effectiveness of joining the consortium. In addition, we explore the possible hurdles as well as trends for future cooperation.
