This literature review examines the growing trend of patron-driven acquisitions in libraries. The article discusses different types of patron-driven acquisitions, as well as advantages, challenges, and best practices for adopting this purchasing method. The dearth of literature on public libraries using this method is noted, suggesting future opportunities for research.
