Stacks Reorganization at a Small Liberal Arts School
The Boatwright Library stacks working group is a team compromised of members of different departments who represent key stakeholders in the future of our physical collections. The group is currently in the midst of working on a stacks reorganization plan as well as planning the future of our physical collections here at Boatwright Library. The group would like to present a poster outlining this stacks re-organization timeline.

The poster will include aspects of what has happened in the past, present, and future. It will identify both successes of our project as well as pitfalls. We believe that this will generate helpful discussion and ideas to similar sized libraries as well as ideas that could be applied to larger and smaller libraries. Audience members will be engaged during the poster presentation by asking questions about our process. Both smaller and larger institutions will be able to learn about what was positive and negative about our reorganization process.

Additional Contributors: Tom Campagnoli, Integrated Library Systems Administrator; Lynda Kachurek, Head Rare Books and Special Collections; Catherine Clements, Special Formats Cataloging Librarian.

The Focus of Three - Collaboration and the Stages of Electronic Acquisitions
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.
