Speaker: Greg Doyle, University of Oregon

Patron-driven acquisition and purchase-on-demand models are being tested in multi-type and same-type library systems and consortia in several pockets of the country. These pilots empower patrons to select print materials, e-books or both for their local library collection while meeting their own immediate information needs. These initiatives allow libraries to test specific theories to gauge the impact a patron-driven acquisition model will have on local and regional collections, circulation, budgets, usage and user services. Join us as we learn from a panel of speakers about some of these initiatives and their outcomes.
