About the Webinar
Demand-driven acquisition (DDA) is transforming collection development strategies for a growing number of academic libraries. By putting library users in the driver’s seat, DDA offers libraries a unique opportunity to better maximize budgets by shedding traditional “just in case” collection development to fine-tuned collections that meet actual user needs. But for many libraries, this model is also being driven by financial necessity, often creating a new set of challenges for libraries to define scope and selection threshold of potential collections.
In this session, three representatives from the academic, consortia, and content provider communities share their insights, challenges and strategies for DDA collection development. If you’re thinking of a DDA program, or currently engaged in a DDA program, you won’t want to miss this informative session.
