In Summer 2012, the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) convened a working group to create a recommended practice regarding Demand-Driven Acquisition. This group, consisting of librarians, publishers, e-book aggregators and approval and ILS vendors, is developing a flexible model for print and e-book DDA that will work across all stakeholders. Its Recommended Practice, planned to be completed in 2013, is intended to support the ability of libraries to develop DDA plans that meet differing local collecting and budgetary needs while also allowing consortial participation and cross-aggregator implementation.

The working group co-chairs will discuss the background and impetus for the formation of the group and report on its progress starting out. As part of the information gathering phase of work, a discussion will solicit audience input on the recommendations to be included, which could include the following:

  • Best practices for populating and managing the pool of titles under consideration for potential purchase, including methods for automated updating and removal of discovery records;
  • Development of consistent models for the three basic aspects of e-book DDA – free discovery to prevent inadvertent transactions, temporary lease, and purchase – that work for publishers and libraries;
  • Methods for managing DDA of multiple formats; and
  • Ways in which print-on-demand (POD) solutions can be linked to DDA
