Would you like to have a better idea of which books your patrons really will use in your medical or health sciences library?  The Rittenhouse R2 platform has a flexible PDA  Patron Driven Acquisitions feature that allows patrons to select titles themselves. The librarian can make the final decisions to order the items or not.  In this way the PDA feature helps patrons and librarians to work as partners, increasing book usage and patron engagement.

In October, OHIONET's webinar on HathiTrust introduced us to this rich online resource.  Like the elephant it is named after, Hathi is huge, powerful, and has a long memory.  Started in 2008, now over 90 academic institutions are participating by sharing millions of library resources that they have digitized, including published works, archives, and rare materials.  One of our members, the Ohio State University, is also a HathiTrust member.
