“Beyond Demand-Driven: Incorporating Multiple Tools in a Consortial Collection Strategy”: For over 20 years, OhioLINK has been committed to sharing resources among member libraries. The emergence of e-books caused OhioLINK to re-evaluate its model for sharing access to resources: e-books purchased at an individual institution can’t typically be shared with other institutions. OhioLINK has purchased e-book collections directly from major publishers such as Springer and Oxford; however, that model does not fully meet our needs. Recognizing this, OhioLINK instituted a pilot project to acquire and share e-book content across the consortium. Incorporating multiple collecting strategies including e-book collections, e-book approval plans, and Demand-Driven Acquisitions (DDA) and using YBP as well as publisher and aggregator partners, the pilot processes can be integrated with collecting tools and strategies already in use across the state. We will outline the assumptions that underpin this project, the process of designing our model, challenges with implementation, and early results.

“Four Years of Unmediated Patron-Driven Acquisition and 5000 Ebooks Later: We Gave ‘Em What They Wanted”: As one of ebrary’s largest academic library DDA customers, the program at the University of Iowa Libraries has been highly successful, though not without challenges. This presentation will present detailed findings from analyzing Iowa’s demand-driven acquisition e-book usage data from over 5,000 titles purchased over four years, including examining subject areas, prices, publishers, and other relevant metrics. This presentation will serve as update to a popular session at Charleston in 2010 (Give ‘Em What They Want: Patron-Driven Collection Development), where Iowa presented data from a one-year pilot program. Now, with four years of experience under our belts, a lot more data, and over a half-million dollars spent from our coffers, Iowa will share what we have learned, gained, and changed as a result of our experiences.
