Assessing the Value of E-Books Purchased through Demand-Driven Acquisitions
Libraries rely heavily on demand-driven acquisitions to purchase e-books that are of immediate value to their patrons. Library administrators, collection managers, and anyone involved in providing access to e-books should know how well their DDA program is meeting patron needs. This poster presents a brief analysis of four years of data on the USU Library’s DDA purchases, showing the insights that can be gathered on the quantity, cost, and use of DDA e-books across broad disciplinary categories.

A Time to Help: Painlessly Assisting Patrons with Legal Questions at the Reference Desk
Reference librarians, especially in public libraries, often encounter legal research questions. You don’t need to be a law librarian to direct your patrons toward useful research resources! Many free resources are available to help patrons research their legal questions. Reference librarians can develop strategies to direct patrons to appropriate resources and triage patrons to other locations for assistance to improve user experience in their libraries.
