The NHTI Library, already invested in an innovative instructional lab based on Biophilic Design and collaborative learning utilizing tablet technology, became one of the first academic libraries to envision and offer Flipster. Flipster, originally marketed for public libraries EBSCO’s Digital Magazines, is an academic resource to support faculty and student needs. The presentation discusses the challenges of selecting a digital magazine platform, the solutions provided by Flipster, and an assessment of the effects on curriculum, instruction, increased resource utilization, budgeting, statistics, the library, and the college as a whole. With the changing landscape of academic libraries, including a shift to online resources, increased costs, budget constraints, space and storage questions, the NHTI Library decided that Flipster is the resource that best meets the academic needs of faculty and students, and this presentation will detail the process of this decision.
