[Moderator: Sarah Strahl, Ela Area Public Library]
Title: Solving Budget Problems with Electronic Resource Analysis (without Firing Anyone or Cutting Services!) (http://proposalspace.com/p/4526/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
Tracking usage statistics and cost-per-search helps analyze electronic subscription collections. Many other less-than-obvious factors go into collection development and weeding decisions. Learn how CSU-Pueblo absorbed a $50,000 budget cut without firing anyone or cutting services to the campus. They merely examined the data you don't think about.
Title: Enough space: leveraging electronic resources to increase student space in the library
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4527/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
While knowledgebases can often provide overlap analysis reports for library subscriptions, they fail to acknowledge a difference between perpetual access and leased content, limiting its utility for making decisions relating to weeding. This presentation details the steps involved in identifying print/electronic overlap with the intention of weeding specific stacks ranges.
Title: The Impact of Resource Sharing and eBook Acquisitions
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4529/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
Some publishers allow ebook borrowing/lending privileges among libraries, while others don't allow borrowing among reciprocal borrowing/lending consortiums. This session will discuss the impact ebook acquisitions have on smaller academic libraries that participate in reciprocal borrowing/lending consortiums, including advantages and disadvantages in partnering with libraries with large ebook collections.
