ALLOW STUDENTS TO TELL YOU WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO BUY – WITH ‘SUGGEST FOR PURCHASE‘
Institutions have the option to make un-owned content discoverable on the dawsonera reader portal where the user can then access a 5 minute review, request a rental (if activated) or suggest a title for purchase.
With purchase suggestions enabled, students can request titles which they think will be of benefit to them. They’ll be presented with a pop-up window to fill out after clicking on the Suggest For Purchase icon featured on the abstract page.
The pop-up window is a simple form for users to enter their email address and then optionally add a reason for purchase. Once submitted this is then sent to the Administrator for consideration. Should the title be purchased the originator will be notified by email that their suggestion has been purchased and a notification will automatically appear the next time they access dawsonera.
