Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)—portable, multifunctional, and able to connect with computers and Using PDA in Libraries book both a fast-selling consumer device and a hot technology for libraries. This timely guide helps librarians and information professionals understand how these devices fit into day-to-day operations and how libraries can become more accommodating to PDA-using by: 4.

The panel discussed the role of patron-driven acquisition (PDA) in academic libraries, with at least two of the panelists, from the Universities of Utah and Arizona, advocating a greater role for PDA in libraries. Both these types of PDA are “mediated” as a librarian reviews the requests and makes the decision whether or not to add the item to the collection.

Electronic PDA can also be mediated. WL PDA is currently for electronic books only and is not mediated directly. Get this from a library.

Using PDAs in libraries: a how-to-do-it manual. [Colleen Cuddy] -- Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)--portable, multifunctional, and able to connect with computers and networks--are both a fast-selling consumer device and a hot technology for libraries.

This timely. In an effort to increase our ability to give customers at Field’s own hometown Chicago Public Library (CPL) just what they want, we have begun a patron-driven acquisitions (PDA) project with a grant of $, from the Illinois State Library (ISL) to enable ladies (and gentlemen, kids, and teens, too) to have more direct input into what.

These laws are: Books are for use. Every reader his or her book. Every book its reader. Save the time of the reader.

The library must be a growing g: PDA. I browse the racks of thrift stores and library book sales using an electronic bar-code scanner. I push the button, a red laser hops about, and an LCD screen lights up with the resale : Michael Savitz.

Patron-driven acquisitions (PDA) is a method by which libraries acquire books that delays purchase until the moment of first use. The aim of this report is to provide guidance to publishers, especially university presses, as to how to offset any sales losses from PDA and, through a tighter weaving of publishers' and libraries' interests, even.

PDA would theoretically eliminate the full sale of all library books that end up merely sitting on the shelves in testament to the supposed folly of librarian-driven acquisition -- roughly 40 percent at your average general research library, said Esposito.

With PDA models including Recommend to Library, Demand-Driven Acquisition and now Cost-per-Circ, libraries and schools will be able to more efficiently manage their digital book collections and target specific areas of their community by giving them more control of the books they purchase.

Browse to the Web page of your public library on your computer or PDA. Search the library's online catalog for the audiobook you wish to check out.

The scenario for e-books, no ILL, and no PDA. Library A has the ebook in its collection, Library B does not.

There is no monetary cost in this, but the patron leaves unsatisfied.

PDA stands for Patron Driven Acquisition and it is becoming a popular way to build an eBook collection.

The library also has patron-driven acquisition (PDA) plans for ebooks and streaming video. In these models, a purchase is triggered once a certain threshold of use is reached.
