Description New NISO Work Item: Recommended Practices for Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA) of Monographs
Michael Levine-Clark, Collections Librarian, Professor, Penrose Library, University of Denver

NISO Voting Members are currently evaluating a new work item proposal for the creation of a Recommended Practice in the area of demand-driven acquisition (DDA). The outcome of this vote will be available the week before ALA. DDA allows libraries to provide users with immediate access to a wide range of titles to be purchased at the point of need, and many libraries are using e-book aggregators and approval vendors to implement DDA plans for some portion of their monograph collections. As it is clear that DDA will be adopted on some scale by libraries, publishers, vendors, and librarians need to help shape practices and tools in a way that allows the scholarly communication supply chain to continue to function effectively. The goal of the working group, if approved, will be to develop a flexible model for DDA that works for publishers, vendors, aggregators, and libraries. This model will allow libraries to develop DDA plans that meet differing local collecting and budgetary needs while also allowing consortial participation and cross-aggregator implementation.
