  3. Create folders and save ebooks, articles, etc to them.
  4. Save your search queries.

What is DDA?

Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA).

DDA allows our students, faculty, and staff to help the library determine what gets added to our collections. Titles which are placed on the library's DDA list, will appear in the library's catalog, and are accessible to anyone browsing. The library does not own these ebooks until a patron does one of the following: 

  • 10 minutes reading in full text
  • 10 page turns in full text
  • Downloading an eBook/audiobook
  • Printing, emailing, or copying any portion of full text

After a title is triggered, it becomes part of the library's perpetual ebook collection.
