Following an unprecedented level of staff turnover, the Metropolitan State University Library had an opportunity to effect deep changes in its Technical Services department. Demonstrating a commitment to a patron-driven acquisition model, the Library refashioned its acquisitions workflow and the process for acquiring e-books along the way. This presentation will outline our decision to provide patrons full access to the EBL catalog and allow their usage to guide our acquisitions, catalog maintenance, and collection development processes. We will discuss the steps that led to these decisions, the pros and cons of opening up access, and how we envision the future of our relationship with digital resources.
