ZB MED extends offer

New PDA model for the acquisition of print media

Recently ZB MED made selected current book-titles from the area of life sciences available for the public on its search portal LIVIVO. These will only be purchased if the patron wants them, the so called “Patron Driven Acquisition.”

The offer stands for all registered LIVIVO users, even without a library card.

The PDA titles are marked by the button “Order free of charge”.


This service enables a collection development conducted on the requirement of the scientific community and therefore has a higher user-friendliness.
