Demand-Driven Acquisitions, part 1

This hour-long session, one of two parts, gives an overview of key concepts behind demand-driven acquisitions (DDA):

  • why and how to implement
  • benefits to the library and the campus community
  • implications for the library collection

Examines the theoretical concepts about DDA while giving practical advice about setting up DDA in libraries with some considerations of long-term impacts by looking at a case study from the University of Denver.
