  8. 8. EBL’s Demand Driven Model Demand-driven access takes advantage of the immediacy of the digital medium… EBL’s Demand-driven Acquisition enables libraries to make ebooks visible to patrons without purchasing the titles outright. Titles can then be ‘rented’ or purchased according to pre defined rules as needed by patrons. – Access to non-owned either through library OPAC (by loading MARC records) and/or within the EBL platform – 5 minutes free full text browsing for non-owned titles – Beyond the browse period, libraries decide what transactions and permissions apply
  9. 9. EBL’s Demand-driven Options Libraries customize users’ experience and transaction workflow •Non-mediated • Beyond browse period, patrons automatically trigger a short-term loan (rental) of an ebook or a purchase •Automated transactions can be price-mediated (i.e. rental over $20 is mediated). •Mediated Access • Beyond browse period, patrons can request further access to non-owned titles. • Library Alerted of Request • Libraries can choose to either rent or purchase requested titles.
