In response to shrinking library collections budgets, more and more libraries have turned to electronic demand-driven acquisitions (e-DDA) as an alternative to outright purchase of e-books. At the 2016 Charleston Conference, librarians from the University of Kansas (KU) delivered a presentation, “Boom and Bust: Short-Term Loans Five Years Later,” discussing the development and transformation of the Libraries’ e-DDA program over the previous five years. Through analysis of our recent short-term loan (STL) and e-DDA expenditures, several recommended changes were proposed in order to keep the program cost effective going forward. These recommendations included: changing our preferred e-DDA lending preference to single-user format; adopting APEX, an ebook service through GOBI Library Solutions; and entering into a collaborative e-DDA program with Kansas State University (KSU) Libraries.

This poster will serve as a follow-up to the 2016 session, providing initial assessment of the recommended changes that were made and suggesting whether these changes can be deemed successful in reining in program costs or whether further modifications are needed.
