Triangle Research Libraries and Oxford University Press program-tested whether it would be possible to create a financially sustainable model for the consortial acquisition of e-books coupled with a shared print copy (housed in a remote storage facility) for core monographs needed to support instruction and research across the disciplinary spectrum--including the humanities. After a half-decade they learned how to make such an overall transition from print to an overwhelming e-book environment work financially for both university presses and research libraries within a transitional framework that is acceptable to users while moving both libraries and publishers to a decidedly electronic environment for monographs, when appropriate (and access to print, where needed!).
