Digital content products and technologies provider ebrary, US, has announced that it is extending the Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) pilot programme for academic libraries through Spring 2010. The company intends to launch its finalised PDA product this summer.
Additionally, ebrary is conducting a survey to better understand libraries' needs and challenges with regard to PDA models. The questionnaire is available through January at http://tinyurl.com/ebrarypdasurvey. Results will be available later this year.
ebrary’s PDA pilot participants are given access to a selection of about 100,000 e-books and other titles from publishers such as Wiley, Elsevier and McGraw-Hill. Purchases are automatically triggered based on usage measured by page views, copies and prints. Titles purchased through the PDA pilot integrate with other ebrary products and services including Academic Complete, ebrary’s subscription product that seeks to provide cost-effective, multi-user access to a selection of more than 45,100 titles.
