1 Buy Only What You Need: Demand- Driven Acquisition as a Strategy for Academic Libraries IDS Project Conference Oswego, NY August 3, 2010 Michael Levine-Clark Collections Librarian University of Denver

2 Why Demand-Driven Acquisition?

3 Don’t librarians know best?

4 University of Denver Data – All Books – 252,718 titles (25,272 a year) – 46.9% unused (118,387) – 126,953 titles – 39.6% unused (50,226) FY 2010 – Approx $1 million spent on monographs

5 University of Denver Data – University Press Books* – 40,058 titles (8,012 a year) – 39.7% unused (15,883) – 20,277 titles – 31.0% unused (6,278) *“University Press” in publisher field

6 University of Denver Use Data (Titles Cataloged ) AllU.P ,854 (18.8%)4,029 (19.9%) 310,461 (8.2%)1,954 (9.6%) 216,257 (12.8%)3,134 (15.5%) 126,155 (20.6%)4,882 (24.1%) 050,266 (39.6%)6,278 (31.0%)

7 University of Denver Use Data (U.P. Titles Cataloged in 2000) Ever UsedUsed 2005 or Later (22.1%)882 (20.1%) 3424 (10.0%)349 (8.3%) 2682 (16.1%)439 (10.4%) 1968 (22.9%)475 (11.2%) 01,217 (28.8%)2,078 (49.2%)

8 The Universe of Titles 170,663 books published in the U.S. in 2008* 53,869 books treated on approval by Blackwell in FY 2008 (North America) 23,097 forms generated in FY 2008 – 4,687 titles ordered from forms *Library and Book Trade Almanac 2009, p. 506 (preliminary data).

9 Everything is Different Born-digital books shouldn’t go out of print OP material easy to find Users expect remote access We’re more accountable to our administrations – Budget – Shelf space

10 How We’re Implementing Demand-Driven Acquisition

11 Developing a DDA Plan for DU Jan 2009: Begin conversations with Blackwell Spring 2009: Begin conversations with EBL Summer/fall 2009: EBL/Blackwell platform development Dec 2009: YBP/Blackwell announce merger Jan 2010: Begin conversations with YBP Spring 2010: Implement DDA with EBL Spring 2010: Plan DDA with YBP Summer 2010: YBP/EBL negotiations

12 The EBL Model First five minutes: free First three uses: STL 1 or 7 days Fourth use: purchase

13 The University of Denver Plan Print and Electronic Books YBP and EBL Slips – No fiction or textbooks – Discovery through the catalog POD (eventually) Automatic approval books will continue to come automatically (for now)

14 The User Experience Catalog – eBook – Print book Landing Page – Designed by EBL – Links to both versions – More information eBook platform – eBook – Link to catalog for print (eventually) Request – eBook platform – seamless – Catalog links to landing page

15 Workflow MARC records loaded (based on YBP slip notifications) Requests routed through Acquisitions (III Millennium Recommendations) Acquisitions places order – YBP or Baker & Taylor Book received Patron notified Future: drop ship to patron

16 Assessment Feedback Form (p) – At Request – At Delivery Slip “Ordering” (p) Use Data (p and e) Overlap of p and e

17 Dealing with Uncertainty Budgeting – Constant vigilance – Be ready to spend in May/June – Be ready to suppress records/turn off access By date By publisher By series By use trends For all

18 Building Permanent Access Purchased ebooks Purchased print books Purchased POD Links to other unpurchased content – Series – Subjects – Publishers

19 Implications

20 Impact on Researchers Can they – Browse the collection? – Get books as needed? – Get older books?

21 Impact on Libraries What about ILL? – Blur between ILL/Acquisitions – eBook rental replaces ILL? What about Collections of Record? Are we still building collections, or are we just buying books?

22 Impact on Librarians More time for harder selection? Less connection to collection?

23 Implications for Scholarly Publishing Less predictable – Reduced frontlist sales? – Increased backlist sales? – Fewer copies sold per title? – Higher cost per title? – Fewer titles published? Better ebook sales?

24 Implications for Authors Harder to publish a book? – Implications for tenure/promotion – Alternate forms of publication?

25 Looking to the Future

26 Short Term eBooks – Multiple aggregators Inconsistent coverage Inconsistent DRM – Publisher platforms Print books – “On Demand” = “by mail” – Speculative purchasing for many titles

27 The Ideal Model All scholarly monographs available e/POD – Aggregator or publisher – POD in library Speculative purchasing – Rare/unusual – Special collections – Based on solid use data
