Other Types of Libraries

Abstract

Demand-driven acquisitions (DDA) programs can also be incorporated into different types of libraries including specialized libraries, school libraries, and library consortia. The concerns for these types of libraries are different, but integrating DDA strategies is possible even if it is not feasible to implement a vendor-provided, catalog-integrated ebook DDA program. This chapter examines research specific to different types of DDA programs in specialized libraries, discusses the potential for DDA integration into school libraries, and addresses special concerns for consortia including workflow and budgeting.
