Description: This presentation discusses Demand-Driven Acquisitions (DDA) and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at the University of North Texas (UNT). For the Texas STEM Librarians' Conference, the author will present data and information about the pilot program, and how the Discovery Collection and the purchased titles are distributed, particularly regarding the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. Of particular interest is a scenario analysis of the selections to determine which purchase model would have been most effective for the money spent. This has already impacted decisions being made to expand the program in the next fiscal year.
