Focused Australian Study
datasetposted on 25.08.2018 by Francois Petitjean
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The Focused Australian Study shows availability and terms of access for a sample of 546 books across the five main Australian library ebook aggregators (Overdrive, James Bennett, Wheelers, Bibliotheca and Bolinda). This case study provides an overall snapshot of the competitive playing field in a single market, including similarities and differences across aggregators on a title level.
