This poster will explore the process of developing a unique pilot PDA program for print music scores and monographs from concept to reality at an ARL institution, describing collection development considerations, IT infrastructure needs; implementation issues; request and acquisitions workflows; and plan evaluation. In 2014 collection management and acquisitions a at the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida approached Harrassowitz, Booksellers and Subscription Agents regarding utilizing the vendors approval and new title announcement profiles to build a print PDA plan that would support the teaching, learning, and research needs of the musicology faculty. Though some academic libraries, including the Smathers Libraries, had implemented print PDA plans for monographs, no example of a plan for music scores could be identified. In addition, Harrassowitz did not support print PDA plans, but was willing to experiment with UF on a pilot basis. The poster intends to examine how partnering with vendors to implement innovative collection building plans, based on current trends in acquisition methods, can support both the needs of users and the goals of libraries through a method that offers an increase in access to materials in a fiscally responsible way. Session attendees can expect to learn about the opportunities and challenges the library and vendor faced in planning and implementing the plan, plan outcomes and evaluation, and what next steps will be taken. Attendees will be able to ask questions and engage in discussion with the librarians responsible for building and managing the plan.
