Innovative Purchase Model for e-Books Launched

11/6/2013 12:00:00 AM

Gale today announced a new purchase option – a Usage-Driven Acquisition (UDA) model – for its Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) e-book platform. The new purchase model will allow libraries to purchase e-books based on actual usage. GVRL delivers reference content and series non-fiction titles to all types of libraries.

Customers interested in the UDA model will make an upfront deposit (minimums apply) and will get complete access to the full line of Gale and Gale imprint e-titles, roughly 2,000 titles, for six months. At the end of the six month period, e-books with the greatest usage will be automatically added permanently to the library’s GVRL collection and deducted from the library’s initial deposit. Once an e-book is purchased, libraries have unlimited, simultaneous use of the title.
