ProQuest is here to help…

Pioneered by ProQuest, subscriptions offer an affordable way for libraries to provide a base collection of ebooks in both single and multi-disciplinary subject areas. Many libraries enhance their collections with Demand-driven Acquisition and Perpetual Archive.
Perpetual access enables libraries to buy and own ebooks, just like print titles. Libraries can select individual titles or pre-selected packs of titles.
Pioneered by ProQuest, Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA) enables libraries to provide access to a large number of ebooks of their choice – and only purchase those that are used following a free browse period or when the patron copies, prints, or downloads. When titles are triggered by patron use, the library has the option to purchase the titles (perpetual access) or leverage short-term loans (STLs).
ProQuest offer flexible options for Short-term Loans, which may be used as an additional layer of mediation before titles are triggered for purchase under our Demand-driven Acquisition programs or as a supplement to traditional ILL.
New from ProQuest, Access-to-Own (ATO) is an innovative, usage-based acquisition model that facilitates title ownership by applying spending on loans towards perpetual purchases. ATO can be run as part of a library’s Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA) program.
