17 New Sales Models - eBook, Print & eBook, POD 17

18 New Sales Models - buying sections 18

19 New Sales Models - PDA Patron Driven Acquisition PDA is now practical largely due to the spread of the eBook - Enormous savings for libraries - Increased revenues for publishers o Walter De Gruyter by 20% o Ithaka/Jstor forecast 15% growth Library makes automatic buying decision based on usage! Aims and Scope 40% percent of books purchased in traditional ways never circulate And 40% circulate fewer than three times. By contrast, PDA allows a library to borrow or buy books only when a patron needs them. The library imports bibliographic records into its catalogue at no cost. When a patron finds a patron-driven record in the course of research, a short-term loan can allow him to borrow the book The transaction charge to the library will be a small percentage of the list price. Typically, a library will automatically buy a book on a third or fourth use. 19
