Description

The Evolution of Ebook Collection Development: Why DDA & Access-To-Own Are Here to Stay

Given shifting budgets, a return to the days of using approval plans or a single way to purchase ebooks is not an option. In fact, 70% of librarians recently surveyed report that they rely upon multiple acquisition models in their collection development strategy.

ProQuest is at the forefront of creating and delivering Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA) models to help libraries meet user needs within budget. We invite you to a luncheon to celebrate the launch of Access-To-Own (ATO), a new model built in collaboration with librarians and publishers as a way to apply short-term spend toward ebook ownership.

Featured speaker Tony Davies, of Australia’s Swinburne University of Technology, is a longtime DDA user. “For us it is a way to provide access to a much wider pool of titles than we could if we only looked at major publishers and aggregators,” he says. Tony joins other librarians at this luncheon to talk about the advantages of combining DDA and ATO to provide robust collections full of diverse content.


Moderator: Kari Paulson, VP Market Development, ProQuest

Featured speaker: Tony Davies, Associate Director, Information Resources, Swinburne University of Technology
