Technology to Minimize Risk
*/Friday, June 24, 2011 (8:30 a.m. -- 4:00 p.m.)/

More libraries are utilizing patron driven acquisition (PDA) and 
vendors are offering creative business models to complement 
traditional purchasing approaches, posing new 
opportunities/challenges for acquisitions. This pre-conference, 
led by experienced professionals, will guide attendees through 
the different models, expose them to real life programs at 
libraries of varying sizes, offer strategies for the set-up and 
on-going management, as well as point out common technical 
services issues.
