demand paging
Last modified: Tuesday, October 30, 2001 

In virtual memory systems, demand paging is a type of swapping in which pages of data are not copied from disk to RAM until they are needed. In contrast, some virtual memory systems use anticipatory paging, in which the operating system attempts to anticipate which data will be needed next and copies it to RAM before it is actually required.
