CFP: Going out on a limb -- pushing the boundaries of DDA (Against the Grain)

CFP:  Going out on a limb -- pushing the boundaries of DDA (Against the Grain)

We are inviting you to submit brief abstracts (1-2 paragraphs) prior to July 5, 2012, for a special fall 2012 Charleston Conference issue of Against the Grain on DDA/PDA (demand-driven/patron-driven acquisition/access). 
Following a year and a half after the last special issue on this topic, it’s time to take a look at where we’ve landed, and what’s down the road.   

We are interested in a variety of perspectives.  Distributors, publishers, vendors, consultants, library patrons, and library workers from all types of libraries are encouraged to send your ideas  
We’re particularly interested in:
  • What sorts of models could appear in the next generation (DDA of articles, multimedia, etc., with access beyond library catalogs, e-book platforms, & discovery services)
  • Radically redefining library selection, “collections,” and approval plans with DDA
  • DDA usage analysis by subject & cost
  • To weed or not to weed DDA records (triggered or non-triggered)
  • The current state and the future of short-term loans, manual DDA, and extended access
  • Results of consortial DDA projects
  • Perspectives on, or plans for, DDA from small presses, scholarly presses, journal publishers, database vendors, etc.
