Demand-Driven Acquisitions, part 2

A theoretical overview of how demand-driven acquisitions (DDA) would work as the primary means of building monographic collections and how that model would impact publishers/publishing, approval vendors, libraries, and end users. Includes an in-depth discussion of concerns and questions about the implications of DDA on the scholarly communication supply chain—publishers, approval vendors, libraries. How will DDA impact each group? How might DDA change publishing? Will approval vendors need to develop new business models? How will library collections be impacted?
