Building an e-Book Collection via Demand-Driven Acquisition

Is demand-driven acquisition (DDA) right for you? Middlesex County College Library has been using DDA to build its e-book collections since 2011, and our experience may either make the case for DDA or scare you away. This program will lay out the benefits and challenges of DDA, including setting up subject profiles, selecting material, monitoring funds, managing catalog records and weighing DDA against other available e-book acquisition models. Dan Lane from BCCLS will discuss demand driven e-content acquisitions in the public library sphere.
