The Evolution of Ebook Collection Development: Why DDA & Access-To-Own Are Here to Stay (Sponsored by ProQuest)
Registration Required

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.

From Rivalry to Cooperation: Building Collaborative EBA
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.

The Short-Term Loan Roller Coaster: The Impact of Publishers' Increasing Prices on Library DDA Programs, or, It's One Heck of a Ride!
Libraries have explored new acquisitions models in recent years, in particular the use of short-term loans (STLs) and demand-driven acquisitions (DDA) of eBooks. The reasons for embracing these options are diverse: shifting collection development practices, assuring use of purchased materials, coping with lower budgets, offering access to supplementary content, expanding library services, etc. Once a DDA/STL program is in place, it can be a winning situation for libraries and their users; libraries can offer access to larger eBook collections than they could buy outright and pay only when content is actually used. However, skyrocketing STL rates are now coupled with lengthy embargo periods - either for front-list titles or for all titles - and more publishers are walking away altogether.

Two years after their 2014 Charleston Presentation, "Earnestly Attempting to Roll with the Punches: The Impact of Publishers - Short-Term Loan Rate Increases on Library Acquisition Options," librarians from four small consortia will document the impact that changes in STL policies and rates have had on their programs over the past two years, what steps they've taken to control increasing costs, and whether they will tweak or continue their DDA programs over the next year. Join us for an open discussion about this overall situation and how it might play out in the long run.
