Demand Driven Acquisition Pilot Project

The UFV Library has started a pilot project to borrow and purchase electronic books using "Demand Driven Acquisition" (DDA). The e-books are provided by EBL, a leader in e-book publishing and acquisition.

What is DDA?
DDA is a method of purchasing items with a known demand or interest.  When a borrower views an e-book for over 5 minutes, a short-term loan (STL)  is triggered.  On the third STL,  a purchase is triggered.

For more details, see our Electronic Books Libguide.
