Details

Implementing and Assessing Use-Driven Acquisitions provides a practical methodology for setting up a use-driven acquisitions plan (UDA) to acquire access to print and e-books for users in academic and special libraries. Each chapter offers specific steps and check-lists libraries can use to develop worthwhile and comprehensive use-driven acquisition plans (also known as demand-driven acquisitions) that fit into the collection development and budgeting objectives of the library. The book proposes methods to assess cost and usage of the content received to determine effectiveness and potential modifications to UDA plans.
