Admins: To add titles to an existing PDA collection

TO SEARCH FOR AND ADD SPECIFIC TITLES:

Begin as if creating a new PDA profile:

  • Go to your ebrary site and sign in to your admin-enabled ebrary account
  • Click the “Admin” tab, then “ACQUISITION” tab and
  • Click to select “Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA)
  • Click “Advanced Search
  • Enter your search criteria
    • For example, add a search line “Title” is “…fill in your title…”
  • Click “Search ebrary
  • Click to select title(s) in the list to add to your collection, or click “Select All” to select all the titles in the list

Then this is where the process differs from creating a new profile:

  • Click “Save Selection to Profile” button (far right)
  • Scroll down in window to section labeled: “Add Documents to an Existing Profile
  • Select desired profile collection (from drop-down list)
  • Click “Add Selected Documents

 

OR, TO ADD NEW TITLES THAT MATCH YOUR PROFILE’S SEARCH CRITERIA:

  1. Go to your ebrary site and sign in to your admin-enabled ebrary account
  2. Go to the “PROFILE” tab, click “Run Search” for the profile
  3. From the list of new matches, click to select the title(s) to add to the profile collection
  4. Click “+ Add to …” button (top left) to add the selected titles to the profile collection

 

You can then go to the PROFILE tab and click View Collection to see that the selected titles have been added to the collection.
