This year, Teaching Collections worked with Kortext to trial a new method of content provision for essential reading through a scheme similar to Demand-Driven Acquisition. Students can trigger a purchase at the point of need and download an eTextbook to their Kortext bookshelf. This lightning talk will outline how we identified titles to include in the pilot, challenges we faced along the way, and how we are ensuring students can access essential reading material at no additional cost.
