  • The Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) is the consortium of the nonprofit academic libraries within the Commonwealth of Virginia. Members include all of Virginia's state-assisted colleges and universities, as well as 34 private, nonprofit institutions and the Library of Virginia.
  • Service is currently enabled for all 2005 imprints and forthcoming for 2013.
  • DDA is cost-effective. It provides access to titles when they are needed, as they are needed.
  • The pool is limited to roughly 5,000 STEM-H published titles. EBL does not receive identifying information about individual users from our systems.
  • BluefireReader app supports iPads, iPhones, Android devices, and the Kindle Fire.
  • There are no additional charges forowned titles.
  • At the end of the pilot, VIVA will do an analysis of the number of STLs and purchases generated by each member institution in order to understand acquisition and use patterns, both VIVA-wide and at the institution level.

    15. 15. E-book Update Part 2:Demand-DrivenAcquisitions (DDA) Pilot
    16. 16. What is DDA?  DDA service allows us to display a pre- selected pool of e-books in our library catalog without buying them in advance  Users have on-demand access to any DDA pool title they find  VIVA will automatically purchase only high-demand e-books from this pool after a specific number of uses is achieved VIVA-wide.
    17. 17. VIVA 12-Month DDA Pilot Pool is limited to STEM-H content only Exclusively VIVA-funded Will allow VCCS patrons access to several thousand e-book titles via their home library catalogs, and have VIVA pay only for titles that are used.
    18. 18. Pilot Selection Model –STEM-H Pool of Titles1. There is no limit to the number of users that can access a DDA pool e-book simultaneously.2. Users have a free 5-minute browse period for any DDA pool e-book.3. Browsing the e-book for more than 5 minutes, downloading, or printing triggers a short-term loan (STL).
    19. 19. Pilot Selection Model –Short Term Loans4. Each STL incurs a small cost charged to VIVA, not the user’s library.5. Once a user triggers a STL, that user has access to that e-book for 7 days.6. A single user is limited to 25 STLs within a 24-hour period.
    20. 20. What Will STL Let Me Do? Read the e-book online or offline for 7 days Email up to 5% Print up to 20% Save chapters in PDF format Download complete e-book in PDF or EPUB format to any device that supports Adobe Digital Editions or the Bluefire Reader app.
    21. 21. Pilot Acquisitions Model –Purchases7. Enough STLs for the same e-book from the DDA pool triggers VIVA to purchase that e-book.8. A VIVA-purchased e-book becomes an owned title held in common.
    22. 22. Pilot Acquisitions Model -Owned Titles9. An owned title come with a generous annual STL allowance.10. Users now have a 10-minute browse period before using the STL allowance.11. The annual STL allowance automatically renews on the anniversary date of a purchase.
    23. 23. Pilot Outcomes At NH 2014, what will we have?  New STEM-H e-books selected by our users A unique DDA model  Data
