Liberty University enrolls over 90,000 students online and this number continues to grow. In part because of its increasing enrollment, the Jerry Falwell Library has seen the use of its e-book collections increase dramatically. In order to best serve students while maintaining costs, various methods have been used to manage the library’s PDA program. This session will focus in particular on a short-term loan (STL) pilot conducted by the library in fiscal year 2014. Collection management librarians will share the rationale for implementing the STL pilot program, the process of implementation, the results of the pilot, and future considerations for STLs and PDA. The session is intended for those new to or considering short-term loans at their institution. All participants will be able to identify several potential benefits of STLs, as well as possible concerns of using the model.
