As with eBooks, Evidence-based Acquisition (EBA) and Demand-driven Acquisition (DDA) media purchasing models through library consortia or media vendors provide another viable avenue for offering digital media content.
Subscription-Based Digital Media Packages
Digital media subscriptions are another means of offering media access. Evaluation criteria for subscriptions to digital media packages follow much of the same criteria outlined under the section, Ongoing Commitments: Subscription-Based resources.
Faculty/Curriculum Media Acquisitions
Materials acquired for this collection follow similar criteria as those for monographs. With a goal of providing support for the curriculum and teaching functions, collection development is largely driven by the expressed needs of the teaching faculty.
Items added to this collection consist of new and popular DVDs aimed at general audiences for recreational and leisure use. Financial resources for this collection are provided to the RMU Library by the Office of Student Life. Selection decisions are based largely on user requests and popularity
