About the webinar:
Patron-driven acquisition has many benefits and ensures that you buy content that is in demand. However, many patron-driven models remove purchasing and budget control.
In this session, we’ll review patron-driven models that allow flexibility in the amount of content, budget investment, and length of access, based on the needs of your library’s specific user community. These models directly involve your users and align their interests with the eBook purchasing process without them having to change their behavior or make manual requests. Through Evidence Based Selection (EBS) you, the librarian, still retain the ultimate decision-making power for which titles are purchased in perpetuity considering usage statistics.
Case studies will be presented to show real-life examples of these acquisition models in action.
