the pattern driven acquisition pda questions
The Pattern Driven Acquisition - PDA questions
  • What is your experience of PDA/textbooks?
  • Do not yet offer PDA on our e-books, we are considering this option.
  • We have worked on a small scale via a third party platform on PDA for the eBooks for FE project (also JISC.) Still work in process.
  • What are the pros and cons with PDA?
  • Library & user:
  • Pro -getting access to a wide range of content without significant capital outlay & only pay for what is used.
  • Con – finding that many titles are randomly accessed which will be costly for the Library.
  • Publisher:
  • Pro - having an opportunity to let users influence/drive purchasing of our content
  • Con – creating a platform is costly and will take manual monitoring and constant adjustments

What do you think about the market for PDA/textbooks?

  • So far our experience has been that the usage of textbooks is influenced by lecturer recommendation more than any other factor.
  • What do you think about the future of e-books in general?
  • We have been publishing eBooks through both digitisation and from our reference and textbook publishing groups for a number of years now and are committed to providing valuable and unique content to our students and researchers in a way that fits the needs and outcomes of libraries, students, and researchers.
