Imagine that you, the CFO of a higher education institution, have been asked to create a budget proposal to transition the university from the use of printed textbooks to e-books. By utilizing the resources available in the NCU library and other resources available to you, research e-book options and the following issues potentially related to this transition:

  • Stakeholders influenced by the transition from print to electronic books
  • Selling the change to those stakeholders
  • Technology needs to implement this change
  • Moving from a per text fee for students to a possible resource fee (wherein e-books would be charged to the student as part of tuition)
  • Negotiating with publishers and the university bookstore to facilitate this transition
  • Impact of this change on students and faculty
  • Impact of this change on the college’s bottom line
  • Other funding issues that may arise during this transition

Length: 6 pages, not including the title and reference pages

References: Include a minimum of five scholarly resources no older than 6 years

Your proposal should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect graduate-level writing and APA standards.
