Title:Decision-making processes for e-book products: Mixture of institutional and rational actions
Author(s):Zhang, Mei
Subject(s):Decision-making processes
E-book product
Institutional theory
Academic library
Abstract:In this study, I examine the decision-making processes employed by academic librarians to purchase e-book products through interviews. I first investigate my participants' perceptions of the context in which they made their purchasing deci-sions. I then explore the mixture of institutional and rational actions found in the described decision-making processes. I conclude by discussing the driving factors that drove participants' adoption of these different actions.
