DDA, EBA, firm order, publisher-direct…the list of acquisition options goes on and on. For today’s academic libraries, devising an acquisition strategy can feel like finding the first corner piece of a 5,000-bit jigsaw puzzle. But a deep dive into metrics from libraries around the world proves that there’s method to the madness.
Join us for lunch and a talk by Pep Carrera, the new leader of ProQuest’s Books business unit, who will share the hard data on acquisition trends not just from ProQuest, but from across the industry. Pep will reveal which acquisition models are most popular, which styles work better for different types of content, and how a little creative thinking can help libraries create the best combination of models to provide for their patrons and preserve their budgets.
