This year Lib4RI is using two relatively new acquisition models to expand its e-book collection significantly. What the two models have in common is that all content or relevant collections of a publisher is accessible to the library user throughout the year without actually being purchased by the library. With the Evidence-Based Acquisition model (EBA) the library selects books which should remain permanently accessible only after the end of the year and for a previously arranged sum of money, typically based on usage statistics. In the Patron-Driven (or Demand-Driven) Acquisition model (PDA), however, the purchase is automatically triggered by the user (through repeated use of the document) up to the amount agreed to in advance and is, hence, not entirely determined by the library. The advantage of both these models is, apart from the wide range of titles available, that in the end the library only acquires those books where there is clear evidence of usage.
