R. W. Steen Library at Stephen F. Austin State University faced a challenge three years ago with a re-organization that removed the Associate Director of Public Services position. This position had previously coordinated the collection development, acquisitions, and assessment initiative so a new structure needed to be developed to fill that gap. An Electronic Resource Committee was formed, comprised of the Head of Research and Instructional Services, the newly created position, Electronic Resources Coordinator and the Head of the Acquisitions Department. Each of these positions coordinate key areas of the triangle and meet weekly to cover all aspects of the process, from the requests for trials, and updates on collection development needs, to budget and license issues, and completing the circle—assessment--to analyze the results quantitatively and strengthen the decision-making process. This poster will highlight the three points of the triangle and their areas of concerns and input, and also focus on successes and failures, both of which strengthened the communication of the committee and many times the individual areas as well.
