Rethinking Your Acquisitions

In an age of evolving collections, business models, and technologies, creative collection management and evaluation practices have been developed in response to institutional demands and emerging content options. Librarians strive to aggregate and deliver critical information by leveraging new and old technologies. Handling a hybrid collection in a landscape full of discovery options and dwindling budgets often inspires librarians to develop their own unique solutions. In some cases, these creative endeavors have often resulted in extra data entry and duplicate processes and achieving completeness has resulted in labor-intensive practices that cannot be sustained; understanding the goals of the work is critical for systems of the future.

DDA exemplifies this type of challenge in the library. Libraries want to offer new ebooks to users and make a larger array of content discoverable but face challenges with the lifecycle tasks related to evaluating the collection, managing and making DDA content discoverable, and evaluating the success of their programs. Other aspects include new approaches to cost management and successful approaches to workflows across multiple library systems.

Be part of our lively and open discussion as a few librarians share new approaches for managing electronic resources and acquisitions, talk about discovery, assessment, hybrid approaches and thoughts on how future systems can better support users and goals. Get a close look at their special projects and workflow services, ask questions and discover ways that you can effectively manage your resources now. Join us!
