Facing a 72% cut in Monographic acquisitions budget in FY13-14, UTA Libraries turned a crisis into an opportunity. We examined print monographs’ circulation data to face the hard truth that the “Just-in-case” collection development model is no longer sustainable nor serving our users. Subsequently, Approval plan was put on a virtual mode, no more Approval book shipments. DDA programs for both electronic and print books were implemented. Broader PDA programs were also implemented to meet our user needs.
