Last Friday I spoke with Jason Price and John McDonald from Claremont Colleges about patron driven purchasing models.  We discussed many of the benefits and barriers to implementing patron driven models and got into detail about a study Jason and John conducted regarding the use of patron selected titles compared to librarian selected titles.  Here are links to the variety of sources that were discussed during the interview:
