Novanet eBook DDA Pilot Project

Early in 2011, Novanet began investigating some type of consortial patron driven acquisition eBook project. Along the way we broke new ground in consortial eBook licencing and delivery, learned a few new things and gathered a lot of data. The results are included here. In February of 2014 the Novanet Board of Directors approved a permanent, ongoing consortial eBook PDA program.
