Technical Developments

Short-Term Loans on EBSCOhost Collection Manager

EBSCO is pleased to announce that a Short-Term Loan option is now available through EBSCOhost Collection Manager (ECM)—instead of purchasing a title on a Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) list outright when activated, users can gain temporary access to the title via a short-term loan at a fraction of the list price.

This also means that libraries now have new customization options for PDA collections:

  • Update your "traditional" PDA collection to trigger short-term loans
  • Establish a loan limit to control how many loan copies any one book can generate
  • Set up a PDA to automatically purchase a title after users have triggered a specified number of short-term loans ("Loan-to-Own")

Enhancements to EBSCOhost Collection Manager

EBSCO has recently released a new version of ECM that features significant enhancements, including:

  • Support for short-term loan/"Loan-to-Own" options (detailed above)
  • A new interface design to simplify the eBook purchasing experience
  • Support for P.O. numbers on ECM orders

If you would like to sign up for training on the new ECM, please visit http://training.ebsco.com.
