In September 2014, University of Florida, Florida State University, and Cambridge University Press embarked to implement a previously untested collaborative Evidence Based Acquisition model. Now two years later, with significant data to analyze, both the libraries and publisher can report on the program's successes and share lessons learned.  From the collaboration that first arose between UF and FSU to address a common problem to the publisher/library partnership that facilitated building a mutually beneficial program, this is essentially a story of adaptation which speaks to the Charleston Conference's annual theme: "Roll With the Times or the Times Will Roll Over You."  This session will focus on demystifying EBA and exploring the benefits of the Evidence Based Acquisition model for both library and publisher.
