DDA, PDA, Demand Driven Acquisitions, Patron Driven Acquisition, E-Book, e-resource management, holdings management, electronic collections, Consortia, Cloud

Learning Objectives

Attendees will come away from this session with resources and ideas to address the complexities of configuring and maintaining a DDA program.  They will also learn how their contemporaries in the field are handing common challenges from both individual and consortia perspectives. 

Specific takeaways will include: 


Managing a Demand-Driven Acquisitions (DDA) program has become a standard part of the library workflow and it shouldn’t be a challenge to you or your users. Discuss how the day-to-day with automated DDA has improved library and consortia holdings management workflows, expanded support levels and affected the user experience.
