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 publication issued in successive parts bearing numerical or chronological designations, is intended to be continued indefinitely, and is published in digital form to be displayed on a computer screen in any medium. This definition includes digital and digitized periodicals, newspapers, and annuals (reports, yearbooks, etc.); the journals, memoirs, proceedings, transactions, etc. of societies; and numbered monographic series. Include open access (OA) serials, except do not count titles from HathiTrust, Center for Research Libraries, Internet Archive, and similar collections. 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, don’t 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.
