This session features the results of the presenters' recent work to create an executive summary of current pay-per-view (PPV) practices, to be published by _Against the Grain_. Building on a talk given at last year's conference on the pros and cons of journal article PPV, the session summarizes the process that was followed and the outcomes that were discovered while writing the summary. PPV options are expanding as is the demand for them, and the presenters outline the current state-of-the art in this area. There are concrete benefits for the PPV approach for many types of libraries, as well as for content providers. Moving in the PPV direction can provide improved user access to content with better ROI on collection dollars.
