  2. 2. PIA, Philosophically<br />PDA? . . . PIA! Patron Initiated Acquisition of eBooks<br />PIA’s a pilot<br />Prospective, not retrospective<br />Every book its use<br />Allow patron need to determine the materials we purchase<br />100% usage for every eBook title purchased<br />100% usage for every eBook dollar spent<br />Print: ~50% usage<br />Bottom line(s): <br />Save money (hopefully)<br />Acquire more relevant content<br />Spend money (more) wisely <br />2<br />
  3. 3. PDA, Environmentally<br />PDA funded/spending based on deposit<br />PDA programs set up for backfill <br />Vendor perspective<br />Academic institution perspective<br />Content and availability<br />Very few simultaneous print and eBook releases<br />Not all print released as eBook<br />3<br />
  4. 4. Publishers<br />Cambridge, Chicago, Oxford UPs<br />Why these three?<br />Nearly half of print titles had electronic equivalent<br />Content level appropriate for university library<br />Our own study found the average delay of p & e release was acceptable<br />Cambridge – 48.5 days<br />Chicago – 78 days<br />Oxford – 9 days<br />4<br />
  5. 5. Where’s the Easy Button?<br />The Publishers<br />Continued traditional publication of print<br />Emerging place of electronic<br />The Vendors<br />pBook vendors<br />eBook vendors<br />Communication<br />The Librarians<br />Control issues – over selection<br />Control issues – spending<br />5<br />
  6. 6. What We Want is Problematic<br />Save money – spend as we go (no deposit)<br />Desire current content<br />Replacing portion of print approval plan – robust profiling<br />Each vendor has a different pricing model<br />Single vs. Multiple User pricing<br />What determines a purchase?<br />Defining a click/use<br />Simultaneous publication of p & e (nope)<br />Vendor coordinate p & e (filling gaps) - automatic hands-off process<br />Coordinating p & e through one vendor difficult<br />6<br />
  7. 7. Not What We Hoped…<br />Different Vendors<br />Different lists<br />Different pricing<br />Different purchase models<br />Different capabilities<br />P vendors and e vendors - communication<br />How to play together?<br />Partnerships? Hmmm… “What looks large from a distance close up ain’t never that big.” – Bob Dylan<br />7<br />
  8. 8. Into the Breach<br />Choosing a vendor<br />Can’t we just load some records?<br />Catch the sky when it falls<br />It’s a pilot…<br />8<br />
  9. 9. Why We Chose Who We Chose<br />PIA eBook records need to match print profile<br />Seamless synchronization of e to p approval plan<br />Communication of availability of e and p between vendors <br />OR one vendor to handle both<br />Communication of delays between e and p<br />Ability to track expenditures with fund codes<br />The Easy Button … maybe, at last…<br />A familiar platform<br />“Single Vendor” – Coutts/MyiLibrary<br />Getting the content out there!!!<br />“It’s a Pilot” – we will assess, no commitments<br />9<br />
  10. 10. PIA with Coutts<br />Coutts: pBook and eBook vendor<br />Map print approval plan into PIA plan; titles matched against PIA plan<br />If eBook available within eight weeks of print release date, Coutts sends an eBook record<br />Profiled as ‘book’ or ‘slip’<br />Both ‘book’ and ‘slip’ eBook records loaded to OPAC<br />If no eBook within eight weeks, Coutts ships pBook<br />Profiled as ‘book’<br />‘Slips’ sent as Excel for firm order with Coutts<br />10<br />
  11. 11. Approvals with PIA<br />11<br />
  12. 12. Slips with PIA<br />12<br />

  14. 14. MARC Record Customization<br />Vendor customizations:<br />Fund code (904 field)<br />URL goes to product page<br />Local customizations (using MarcEdit):<br />Control number: piayymmdd (035 field)<br />Local note: PIA UNPURCHASED EBOOK (599 field)<br />Same cataloging treatment as other e-resources<br />14<br />
