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.

Those areas impacted include the silent study area on the second floor and the G180 computer lab (but G210 will remain open as will the computers in our reference area).
