Ebrary announced that it has partnered with librarians and publishers in order to develop a new patron-driven acquisition (PDA) model. With ebrary's PDA, libraries can create collections of their choice, provide full access to end-users, and have titles added to their collection, in real-time, based on usage. Other features include a profiling tool that selects appropriate content for the PDA collection, free MARC records, and the ability to create and modify automatic notifications for newly available titles of interest.
Ebrary plans to demonstrate the PDA at select upcoming events. For a listing of these events, visit www.ebrary.com/corp/newsEvents.jsp.
