Demand Driven Acquisitions (DDA) Criteria

DDA title lists include eBooks with a purchase price of $120 or less published by selected publishers. Other titles may be added manually at the discretion of the librarians. When adding titles, both purchase price and short-term loan prices should be taken into consideration.

Non-owned titles are automatically purchased after 1 short-term loan, where short-term loans are available.

Textbooks and other high-use titles should be purchased outright to avoid short-term loan fees.
