Making ‘Too Much’ Manageable and Discoverable: How Publishers, Vendors and Libraries Can Work Together to Help Users Unlock the Full Potential of Library Collections

In the land of ‘too much,’ it’s important to have different, creative acquisitions models available; that no matter the acquisitions model, materials are discoverable in a timely manner; and that workflows are streamlined so that librarians can focus on value-added tasks such as collection development rather than loading records and setting holdings.

As libraries integrate ‘just in time’ collection development strategies, management and discovery tools must support the creative (and complex) acquisitions models available from publishers and content providers. These new models provide great opportunities for libraries to connect users with relevant content. However, managing and maintaining accurate holdings information necessary for effective discovery is challenging.

How can publishers, vendors, and libraries work together to optimize discovery, shorten the timeframe from when a title is available to when it is discoverable, and relieve some of the burden on libraries of maintaining holdings? One word, libific. The panel will share more about this exciting initiative currently underway.
