This presentation sheds light on a relatively new phenomenon that needs more earnest consideration from all kinds of libraries: the switch to a pay-per-view (PPV) access model for journals. The presenters, one from a corporate library background and one from an academic background, have extensive experience in utilizing PPV. They plan to detail pros and cons of PPV and how it allows for greater access for users with more financial flexibility for acquisitions budgets. Discussions among acquisitions and collection development librarians in recent years have focused on demand-driven acquisitions (DDA) for e-books. The presenters believe that PPV for journals is in the same vein but even more far-reaching and beneficial.
