This paper explores the challenges of provisioning a rapidly growing collection of ebooks using Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA) and Evidence-based Acquisition (EBA), the advantages and disadvantages of each model, the impact of usage and purchase trends, and whether these models provide enough evidence to establish future demand and content value. It also briefly examines the impact of various types of discovery on ebooks, in contrast with ejournals.
