Collection development in the research library is an area as dynamic as it is critical, and in it we see an important intersection of interests between libraries and university presses. Presenters here will give us a state-of-the-field look at emerging trends in demand-driven acquisitions, library consortia, and the Occam’s Reader pilot project for interlibrary loan of eBooks.
