I thought you might be interested in sharing this call for papers with listservs, colleagues, & Facebook friends– or even better, submitting an abstract yourself! I’m guest editing this issue of Against the Grain; details below.
Call for Papers: Going out on a limb — pushing the boundaries of DDA
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 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
