  • 1. A Demand-Driven-Preferred Approval Plan Ann Roll Pollak Library, California State University, Fullerton 2013 Charleston Conference
  • 2. About CSUF • With 37,000 students, the largest campus in the 23-campus Cal State system • Predominantly undergraduate and masterslevel programs
  • 3. About collecting at Pollak Library • Goal to provide as much content electronically as possible • Book budget decreased 77% from 2006/07 to 2012/13
  • 4. About ebooks at Pollak Library • Successful DDA plan with EBL in place since 2010 • Merged with YBP print approval plan in 2011 • Slipped titles that were simultaneously available as ebooks added to DDA pool • 4 STLs, then auto-purchase • Titles profiled as books continued to be sent in print
  • 5. Approval plan revision for 2013/2014 • Analyzed 2011/2012 print approval receipts and found that 33% had been simultaneously available as ebooks • Had received a lot of textbooks
  • 6. Obvious approval profile changes • Remove all textbooks • Move to e-preferred Would this save us any money?
  • 7. Assessment of past approval receipts If all of the print approval books that arrived in 2011/2012 had been DDA ebooks in the Library catalog, would they have been purchased by one year later? NO (but seven of them would have been)
  • 8. The DDA-preferred approval plan • All titles available as ebooks, whether profiled as books or slips, would be added to the DDA pool • YBP had no system in place for this
  • 9. Workflow adjustments
  • 10. Initial results: titles received
  • 11. Initial results: funds saved
  • 12. Initial results: larger DDA pool
  • 13. More access for less money!
  • 14. Conclusion • Working so far, but will need to monitor longterm effects – Will it cost more in the long run? • Glad to be providing more diverse access within our limited budget
  • 15. Thanks! Ann Roll Collection Development Librarian Pollak Library California State University, Fullerton aroll@fullerton.edu
