This poster discusses how infographics can be used to inform electronic resources collection development decisions. Participants can expect to learn about how Ithaca College librarians used an illustration of the relationships among databases to make retention and cancellation decisions for the 2013-14 fiscal year. The diagram, which was created to help selectors more easily understand how canceling one electronic resource would affect access to other e-resources, also shows the impact of the interconnectedness of the resources on cost. Design considerations and the tools used to create the infographics will also be discussed.
