    A small-scale, unmediated PDA experiment ran at the
    University Library of Southern Denmark in the spring
    of 2016. Usage data from existing book collections were
    used for a comparative evaluation.
    We found that much of the PDA usage centered on a
    few syllabus titles, but that the overall book usage was
    extensive and varied between subjects.
    We concluded that a standard PDA model supplies only
    some of the books in demand, and may give
    preferential treatment to certain patron groups.
