From DDA to EBA: A Five-year Story from a Consortium Shared E-Book Collection Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Maintaining an e-book program at a consortium level is complex. Considerations include ensuring a broad range of useful content is available, stable costs, and minimizing barriers to access for patrons.

This session will look at Orbis Cascade Alliance's experience and evolution across the last five years in testing and assessing different e-book models. The presenters will provide their perspective on how the Alliance is influenced by and influences the e-book ecosystem at large. They will share lessons and reflect upon their successfully run Demand Driven Acquisition approach, and share why they decided to pilot an Evidenced Based Acquisition approach with Wiley.

Attendees can expect to learn how this consortium continues to evolve their approaches with the ever-changing e-book collection acquisition world.
