Monograph Demand-Driven Acquisitions

An announcement from NISO.
NISO will hold its next open teleconference in our monthly series this coming Monday, October 15th at 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.

The topic for the September call will be the new work toward a Recommended Practice for Monograph Demand-Driven Acquisitions. More information on this Working Group can be found at http://www.niso.org/workrooms/dda/.

Launched just last month, this work group will develop a flexible model for DDA that works for publishers, vendors, aggregators, and libraries. This model will allow libraries to develop DDA plans that meet differing local collecting and budgetary needs while also allowing consortial participation and cross-aggregator implementation....

The call is free and anyone is welcome to participate. To join, simply dial 877-375-2160 and enter the code: 17800743#. All calls are held from 3-4 p.m. Eastern time.

The Open Teleconferences are an quick way to get an update on the status of a NISO initiative. The calls are informal and questions and discussion is welcome. Following the featured discussion, there is also an opportunity for the NISO community to bring up any issue or topic of interest. This is an excellent time for you to raise any concerns, project ideas, or suggestions of focus for NISO in the coming year.

If you are unable to join us, this call will be recorded and made freely available on the NISO website following the event—as are all of the Open Teleconferences. For more information or to listen to the previous call discussions, please visit: http://www.niso.org/news/events/2012/telecon/.
