Demand-driven acquisition for an academic architecture library collection: A case study and commentary

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Libraries employ various methods of collection development that incorporate in-case and in-time models for acquisitions to maintain a balance of collection growth and access. Acquisition of e-books, especially within design disciplines, remains an ongoing area of development. In addition to subscription packages and firm orders, demand-driven acquisition (DDA) programs for e-books offer a method for growing collections. Although they appear to limit the role of the librarian in the process, use of these programs can serve to enhance librarian-centered acquisition practices.
