Implementing Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA) for Ebook Acquisition that Fits Your Library - E-LIS repository

Implementing Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA) for Ebook Acquisition that Fits Your Library - E-LIS repository | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA) (also called Demand-Driven Acquisition, DDA)has been commonly used in academic libraries for acquiring ebooks. PDA is still relatively new; libraries have adopted it without an established guideline for best practices. The implementation of the e-book PDA model varies from library to library, so that this poster offers a systematic comparison approach to evaluate different scenarios based on ebook PDA acquisition and usage during 1/1/2012 – 5/31/2014. This work try to help libraries gain a better understanding of how PDA works under different scenarios, and choose the scenario that works best to fulfill their needs. Also we want to contribute to the debate on establishing guidelines for best practices in implementing ebook PDA.

Florida College Opens A Library Without Books

Florida College Opens A Library Without Books | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

A fully digital library is among the futuristic features of Florida Polytechnic University's striking dome-shaped building, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

"It's a boldly relevant decision to go forward without books," said Kathryn Miller, the university's director of libraries.

The inaugural class of 550 students, offered scholarships covering tuition to attend a public university so new it's not yet accredited, can access more than 135,000 ebooks on their choice of reader, tablet or laptop.

A bookless library is a rarity among U.S. colleges but reflects the high-tech ambitions of the university in Lakeland, Florida. Rising along a drab stretch of highway between Tampa and Orlando, Florida Polytechnic envisions building a technology corridor in the image of Silicon Valley.

I wouldn't say destroy, Amazon have been doing that for the last 15 years. Go to the bookstore, find the book and then buy it cheaper on Amazon! The independent bookstores have to find a way to compete or die.
