Why are so many academic libraries moving to Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA)? In this session, we’ll discuss the evolution of usage-based acquisition models to provide greater control and flexibility while maintaining a low cost per use. Librarians will present case studies on implementing both DDA and EBA at their institutions and consortia, and explore how these models fit into their collection development strategy. There will also be time for questions and discussion with the audience. Please join us for what is sure to be an engaging session!
