Demand Driven Acquisitions @ USC: New in 2014-2015

Demand-driven acquisitions provides access to thousands of eBook titles that the Libraries pays for only upon user access.

Updates

In Fall 2014 we started manually adding titles to the DDA pool

  • IDD added 14 titles (Feb. 2015-May 2015)
  • Beth added 7 titles (November 2014-March 2015)
  • 5 of these titles have been purchased; 9 have had 1-2 STLs; 4 have been browsed w/out triggering a loan; 3 have had no usage
  • 5 were not in our DDA pool due to price (over $150); 9 were not in the pool due to publication date (pre-2011); the rest were not included due to the publisher (we restricted certain publishers from our DDA pool)

Expanding the size of the DDA pool by 63% (15,546/24,708) in May 2015

  • 5,807 Slip titles will be added that we did not purchased (2010-2013) for these funds: 
    • LVY, EARTH, NASC, PSYC, GERO (cap of $200)
    • MUSIC (cap of $250)
  • 9,739 titles will be added that were published between 2005-2010

Adding ebrary titles to our DDA program (in May 2015). As of July 31 there are 2,783 titles in our ebrary DDA pool.
