    Following a scoping exercise in summer 2017, the Library embarked on an EBA Pilot Project. The new model enabled the engagement of students in the selection process based on their interaction with the resources. Furthermore, it lead to unanticipated and different levels of engagement with some departments who were traditionally less keen on ebooks. The EBA Working Group was awarded the Maynooth University (MU) President’s Award for Service Innovation in May 2019. This presentation will outline the pilot and its implementation at MU Library, highlighting some of the issues and discussing the benefits and impact of the model.
