Patron-Driven Acquisitions (PDA) is emerging as a new library collection development model and challenging existing business and service models for vendors and publishers. PDA is moving beyond individual projects and becoming yet another model to build and maintain library collections. What guidelines and standards will be required to support PDA?
Speakers in this webinar will:
Present an overview of the introduction and evolution of PDA.
Describe the kinds of PDA -- both print and electronic -- that have developed (e.g., ILL requests and loading records into an OPAC based on library-defined parameters, including approval plans), and whether best practices are in place yet.
Describe the mechanics of workflow (vendor systems, ILS and ILL systems, publisher data), and discuss whether existing standards support PDA, or if there are standards that need to be developed.
Discuss the long-term effects on budgets (which can be spent very quickly), collection development (will the print or electronic book collection remain relevant?), interlibrary loan (will ILL borrowing decrease significantly if items are purchased rather than borrowed?), and publishing models.
