Email: Elsevier EBA Program Ending July 15, Alternates Available

Message sent on behalf of Carol Ann Davis, Associate Dean, to all USF Libraries staff.

The USF Libraries’ Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA) program for ebooks on the Elsevier platform, which has provided faculty and students the discovery and access to significant scholarly books, is coming to an end on July 15th.  The Tampa campus library is in the process of purchasing unowned titles with the most substantial usage or need with the amount remaining in the deposit account by June 30. If you have any requests for Elsevier titles please let us know as soon as possible. C&D will determine if we own them already.

Elsevier records for titles that we are not purchasing and have not been used will be removed from the catalog by July 15. Titles with recent usage that are not selected for purchase on the Elsevier platform will be made available via the Demand Driven Acquisition program on the Ebook Central platform, with associated records loaded into the catalog. Elsevier titles may also be purchased directly through GOBI by emailing If you, or any patron, are seeking an ebook title that you can no longer find in the catalog, please let us know, and we will endeavor to make it accessible for you.

Please let Carol Ann Davis know if you have any questions (
