Since Summer 2012, a National Information Standards Organization (NISO) working group has been developing a recommended practice regarding Demand-Driven Acquisition. This group, consisting of librarians, publishers, e-book aggregators, and approval and ILS vendors, has gathered feedback through surveys, interviews, and focus groups, and will present draft recommendations and ask for audience reactions.

The working group plans to release a final report in Spring 2014. This session will provide a crucial opportunity for stakeholders to respond to preliminary findings of the group, including detailed results of its recent international survey of stakeholders about DDA practices and opinions.  The report will include recommendations on:

  • Best practices for populating and managing the pool of titles under consideration for potential purchase, including methods for automated updating and removal of discovery records;
  • Development of consistent models for the three basic aspects of e-book DDA – free discovery to prevent inadvertent transactions, temporary lease, and purchase – that work for publishers and libraries;
  • Methods for managing DDA of multiple formats; and
  • Models and strategies for measuring and predicting use.
