      • For Purchase: For purchase lists are simply lists of books that you are submitting to be purchased at the selected Access model.

      • Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA): DDA lists will become an active collection in your ECM account. The books in the DDA will become visible to your patrons allowing them to trigger the books for purchase if they experience usage. For more info on DDA, visit: What is Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA)?

    • Payment (DDA Only) - Select a payment type for your DDA list.

      • Deposit: Pay Now - Enter an amount you would like to deposit and EBSCO will invoice you for the full amount within 2 business weeks. The titles that you purchase or loan will be debited from this deposit. Your DDA will never charge you more than your deposit amount.

      • Budget: Pay as You Go - Enter an amount you would like to cap purchases at. EBSCO will invoice you weekly for the titles that were purchased or loaned. Your DDA will never charge you more than your budget amount.

    • Deposit/Budget - Enter a dollar amount to set your deposit or budget for your DDA list.

    • Fund Code - Select a Fund Code from the drop-down menu.

    Smart DDA Options

    • Loan to Own - Select this option to purchase a perpetual access copy for titles on your DDA list for any title that surpasses your Loan Limit. After a title is purchased, it will no longer trigger loans.

      • Loan Limit - Select the number of loans by patrons at which the purchase of a title is triggered.

      • Purchase Titles at - Select an access model at which titles are purchased when the loan limit is reached. Note: If a title is not available at the selected model, ECM will purchase the title at the next available lower cost model. ECM will never purchase an access model higher than you have selected.

    • Loan Only - Select this option to make titles available to users until a specific number of loans has been reached. Once that number has been reached, the title is removed from the DDA.

      • Loan Limit - Set the maximum number of loans for each title in your DDA list. Once that limit has been reached, the title is removed from the list.
