The Long Tail of PDA
University of Notre Dame Patron-Driven Acquisitions Symposium
University of Notre Dame
Patron-driven acquisitions (PDA) titles are known to generate usage at least once at the moment a short-term loan or purchase is triggered. Despite the current PDA buzz, many remain unconvinced of the potential for ongoing circulation. There is skepticism over the sustainability of this model with regard to user interest and the validity of shrinking librarian mediation in the selection process. To discuss these issues, data for content purchased during Ohio State’s 2009/2010 e-book PDA pilot is examined. Several years of usage activity is charted and analyzed for budgetary implications, including cost per use. Key issues surrounding academic library patron-driven collection development philosophies are explored. Particularly, this period when traditional methods of collection development must be maintained, while concurrently moving toward what appears to be the future with patron-driven collection development.

The Future of Acquisitions: Planning for Change in an Ever-Changing Environment
The operations involved in acquiring library materials traditionally include selection, order, receipt, and payment. However, shifting priorities and emerging philosophies are redefining this function with Acquisitions serving as a hub. Acquisitions work at OSU Libraries is expanding to include electronic migration, print retention and withdrawal management, and patron-initiated collection development. During this renaissance period, OSU is also experiencing significant staff retirements and is steadily looking for ways to pass on specialized skill sets and historical knowledge through targeted succession planning and bridging the gap between seasoned and entry-level librarians and staff.

Acquisitions Librarians: Using a Residency Program for Succession Planning
Ohio Valley Group of Technical Services Librarians 2008
For this panel, my colleagues and I discussed in-house training to develop new acquisitions librarians, success factors, advertising for residents, and other ideas for developing acquisitions and technical services expertise in librarians recently entering the field. In addition, I spoke about my experience as a resident librarian, progress, and expectations for the future.
