    Patron-driven acquisitions (PDA) is a rapidly evolving method by which libraries purchase books. In the PDA model, books are only purchased (or, in some instances, rented) when a patron actually requests access. As a practical matter, this is likely to reduce book purchases by libraries and will in any event often delay the date when a book is purchased. As PDA is likely to have an impact on publishers' revenues, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation underwrote a grant to study the impact of PDA on book publishers, university presses in particular. The aim of the study is to provide an overview of PDA from the publisher's point of view and to identify means by which publishers can lessen the economic impact of the new PDA programs.

      Presented on October 4, 2011 at the Metropolitan New York Library Council. The academic library community has been at the center of the copyright wars, advancing the interests of our students and faculty. Digital and network technologies, the licensing of electronic content, and the globalization of copyright have combined to challenge our traditional views of intellectual property. New laws and legislation threaten the sustenance of fair use and key exceptions to copyright. We must re-commit to campus education, political advocacy, and collective risk taking.

      • Ambitious Student Seeks Valuable Internship: Will You Mentor Me?

        Ambitious Student Seeks Valuable Internship: Will You Mentor Me? Anne Marie Gruber (University of Dubuque) and Cara B. Stone (Indiana University) http://bit.ly/LOEXMentoring2011 How does a random email become a graduate student internship and what can be learned from the mentoring experience? What started as email correspondence from an MLS student seeking librarian mentors in her home state turned into meeting in person, and eventually an internship at University of Dubuque's Charles C. Myers Library. Spring 2011 is the first time library staff have had the opportunity to welcome a MLS graduate student intern. The internship primarily focuses on information literacy, involving the student in a thriving, curriculum-integrated program that consists of over 500 class sessions per year, delivered by five librarians. Staff created a mutually-valuable experience, helping the student develop her professional voice. Presenters will share the planning process, including how communication and shared goals are key elements of a successful match. They will reflect on their learning and teaching experiences, sharing examples of personal and professional growth. Participants will engage in discussion of their own institutions' mentoring practices, sharing ideas that can be applied broadly to develop interns, student workers, paraprofessionals, and librarians new to the profession. Many libraries may not have opportunities for MLS-level interns, so practical recommendations to support meaningful mentoring and valuable partnerships within any library instruction program will be discussed.
