|Title:||“Click here to order this book”: A case study of print and electronic patron-driven acquisition in University College Dublin||Authors:||Tynan, Mark
|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5600||Date:||14-Apr-2014||Abstract:||University College Dublin became the first library in the Republic of Ireland to trial patron-driven acquisition (PDA) as a collection development tool in 2013. 42% of UCD Library’s book budget was allocated to the project, which included both electronic and print books. This paper describes the twelve month project from the tender stage, through evaluation and selection of supplier, to the final money being spent. We analyse which disciplines spent most money, and how usage of PDA titles compared to non-PDA orders placed in the same time period. Finally, we assess the impact of PDA on the library’s workflow.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Copyright (published version):||2014 the authors||Keywords:||Book selection; Academic libraries; Library catalogue; E books; Academic staff; Users; Patron-driven acquisitions (libraries); Collection development (libraries); Collection management (libraries)||DOI:||10.1080/13614533.2014.906352||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
