Materials Counts definitions match the requirements for reporting on the current IPEDS Academic Libraries annual survey:
- Number of e-media materials. E-media materials are media materials that are in digital format and are available for download or streaming. Include digital graphic materials and cartographic materials.
- Number of e-book titles (full-text). E-books are digital documents (including those digitized by the library), licensed or not, where searchable text is prevalent, and which can be seen in analogy to a printed book (monograph). Include open access (OA) titles, except do not count e-book titles from HathiTrust, Center for Research Libraries, Internet Archive, and similar collections. Do not include titles in Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA) or Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA) collections until they have been purchased by the library.
- Number of e-serials titles (full-text). An e-serial is a periodical publication that is published in digital form to be displayed on a computer screen. Include open access (OA) serials. If possible, report the count of only those de-duplicated or otherwise unique serial titles included in each resource. If possible include ceased titles. If possible, do not count earlier title changes; however, do not worry about removing them if it is not possible/feasible.
Additional materials not matching these definitions are excluded. These include abstracts and indexes, tests, individual articles, and supplemental content.
