ebrary Launches New Patron Driven Acquisition E-Book Model

Palo Alto, California, United States

As many libraries are facing significant budget cuts, it is increasingly difficult to provide end-users with access to the exact information they need, the moment they need it.

To help address this problem, ebrary® today announced that it has collaborated with librarians and publishers to develop a new patron driven acquisition (PDA) model. With ebrary’s implementation of PDA, libraries may create collections of titles of their choice, provide full access to end-users, and have titles automatically added to their permanent collection in real-time based on usage.

A leading provider of digital content products and technologies, ebrary now offers librarians a choice of PDA, subscription, and perpetual access e-books that can be ordered, managed, and quickly delivered directly within its powerful, easy-to-use interface.

“At ebrary we continually strive to make it more efficient and affordable for libraries to acquire e-books and other authoritative materials from trusted publishers,” said Kevin Sayar, President of ebrary. “By adding patron driven acquisition to our product mix, we enable librarians to economically purchase e-books with guaranteed usage, while making more information discoverable to end-users.”

Key features and benefits of PDA from ebrary include:

Administrative functions for ebrary’s PDA program are consolidated within the ebrary interface along with other purchasing options for ease of use. All e-books selected for PDA are instantly added to the library’s collection and seamlessly integrated with content acquired under additional ebrary models including perpetual access and subscription.

All ebrary products and services include the following key features and benefits to end-users:

ebrary will be showcasing PDA at upcoming events. For a listing please visit http://www.ebrary.com/corp/newsEvents.jsp. Libraries may also request a demo, title list, or additional information by emailing sales@ebrary.com.
