Rittenhouse PDA option for E-books

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 Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) 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.
