How do Patron-Driven Acquisitions (PDA) programs work? What challenges do PDA programs present? What are some key benefits of PDA programs? How do PDA programs supplement, enhance, or replace traditional collection development models? What have libraries learned from implementing PDA programs? Doug Way joins us for a presentation and discussion of e-book PDA in academic libraries. He will also discuss what Grand Valley State University has learned since implementing a PDA program in 2009.
