an ALCTS Program
Sunday, June 26, 2011 | 1:30–3:30pm
Track: Collection Management and Technical Services
Are you interested in getting into patron-driven acquisitions but don’t know where to start? Do you want to know how selectors fit into the PDA model? Would you like to see how other institutions have solved workflow issues? Would you like to hear how people have funded their PDA programs? What about assessment of PDA programs? Come learn about purchase-on-demand programs instituted through interlibrary loan. Public and academic libraries will talk about how they got started doing purchase-on-demand and what the patron response has been.
