NISO Releases Draft of Recommended Practice for Demand-Driven Acquisition

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) made a new recommended practice draft, Demand-Driven Acquisition of Monographs, available for public comment until April 24, 2014. NISO is interested in feedback from libraries already using a demand-driven acquisition (DDA; aka patron-driven acquisition) model as well as institutions considering the option.

The Demand Driven Acquisition of Monographs Working Group aimed to develop a flexible DDA model for vendors, aggregators, publishers, and public and academic libraries. The recommended practice draft discusses the goals of a DDA program for ebooks and print books, including suggestions for managing MARC records, removing materials for consideration, and choosing program parameters.

“Libraries have embraced DDA because it has the potential to rebalance the collection away from possible use toward immediate need,” says Michael Levine-Clark, the working group’s co-chair. “It is important that, regardless of the model used, the program be sustainable for publishers, vendors, and libraries, that there is some free discovery without triggering purchase, and that discovery is integrated in some way with other tools in use by the library. This Recommended Practice addresses all those issues and more.”
