This study presents the results of local implementation of evidence-based acquisition (EBA) models from several publishing vendors. The combination of decreasing funds for engineering monographs and a new library strategic goal of maximizing campus wide access to library collections, forced the engineering librarians to pilot alternative acquisition models that offer access to as much content as possible within the reduced budget. We identified criteria applicable to EBA model assessments and the limitations of each model within our library. For engineering disciplines we determined that EBA models provide significantly enhanced access to needed content, offer valuable insights into current campus information needs, and raise the level of library efficiency in collection development and technical services processing.
