Here’s how the lecture was described on rlumthe agenda:
There is an economic imperative guiding the acquisitions behavior of libraries, and that consideration of alternatives is something that faces all institutions when thinking about those changes when compared to more traditional models. The Demand Driven Acquisition recommended practice developed by the NISO working group is just one of numerous ways to help libraries continue to be creative when faced with the challenge of acquisitions in a limited budget environment.
