English abstract

In January 2012, Kent State University Libraries implemented a 6-month pilot project for a Patron Driven Acquisitions (PDA) e-book purchasing model that uses a combination of the acquisition services provided by the primary book jobber (YBP) and the access services provided by a well-known e-book distributer (ebrary). Using the book jobber mediated PDA model provided the library with selected discovery records that closely matched specifications of the library’s print approval plan. This poster presents a study that examines the role of the library catalog as a tool for e-book discovery and access in a new library collection acquisition model called Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA).
