    1. Introduction
    This project investigated end user’s motivation for selecting an e-book and the role that metadata plays in the discovery, selection and eventual acquisition process. The study also explores factors such as reading lists, tutor recommendations, student recommendations and other drivers that may arise through the course of a student’s and academic’s work and research. It does this in the context of the Patron (or Demand) Drive Acquisitions (PDA /DDA) model. In looking at ebooks, the study does not specifically address the issue of textbooks. Publishers remain reluctant to make textbooks available as ebooks and, in any case, PDA regimes in Higher Education tend not to be designed for or directed at the selection and acquisition of e-textbooks. The JISC ebook observatory project[i] has dealt in some depth with issues around e-textbooks. JISC has also made a collection of around 3,000 ebooks available to Further Education (FE) institutions on a national basis. [ii]
