We've been doing lots of patron-driven acquisitions for books and ebooks. Lately, I've been mulling over this concept for serials. I know there are lots of vendors that offer a purchase on demand service: patrons have access to what they need and the library pays on an article by article basis, by the drink, as they say.
My mini survey: what patron-driven models are available for serial access? Are you using a by the drink model or anything different? I'd love to hear about it. Thanks.
