Michael Zeoli, Vice President, Content
Development and Partner Relations at YBP,
shares his view, backed by compelling data, of
how DDA and STL are impacting the scholarly
ecosystem. Michael Levine-Clark, Professor/
Associate Dean for Scholarly Communications
and Collections Services, university of Denver
Libraries, takes us forward to Evidence-based
Acquisitions, how this newer model works
and, more specifically, how the university of
Denver is implementing this model.
Jason Price, Director Licensing Operations
at SCELC Library Consortium, and Maria
Savova, Director of Information Resources and
Systems at Claremont Colleges Library, have
graciously agreed to cover one of the high-level
topics we feel is critical to an understanding of
STL and other non-standard PA models, Access vs. Ownership.
And we’re especially grateful to Kari Paul
son for agreeing to be interviewed on STL and
how she sees this model, and other emerging
eBook models, within the framework of current
library budgets and the ever increasing demand
for data as an acquisitions driver.

world all abuzz.
In them lies a warning that even a democracy can become too fixated on security and loose freedom.
Woo. Can we say NSA? National
L’Engle had a hard time finding a
publisher until she met John Farrar
of Farrar, Straus and Co. Even he
warned it would not sell. It was too
difficult for children.
L’Engle replied, “The problem
wasn’t that it was too difficult for children. It was too difficult for
