Libraries have been utilizing a variety of methods to acquire e-books for many years. Single-title purchase, Demand Driven Acquisitions (DDA) with and without Short Term Loans (STLs), evidence-based programs and package purchase all continue to be employed. The University of California is currently using and piloting multiple acquisitions methods at both the individual campus and systemwide levels.
Join four University of California librarians as they discuss what has been learned from a single campus pilot of JSTOR DDA, a single campus DDA plan with STLs through EBL, a systemwide evidence-based pilot with CRC Press for ENGnetBASE titles and a systemwide DDA pilot with STLs through ebrary.
