  • The University of Alberta Libraries undertook a creative patron-driven acquisition project in order to more fully meet user needs as well as to evaluate current collection development procedures. The project was unique in that it involved on-demand purchase of both print and electronic titles, and the title selection pool included books previously passed over for purchase by subject selectors. Brief details of the project will be shared, and reflections to inform future PDA projects given.
