Grand Ballroom D

As a collection manager, are you struggling to create an efficient review and selection workflow for electronic resources BEFORE records can be added to your ILS and ERM systems? Are you bogged down by publisher and vendor sudden deadlines coupled by email overload? Come learn about the Kent State University Libraries’ development of a system to manage the resource selection process. After presentations by Kay Downey, Collection Management Librarian, and Rick Wiggins, Lead Applications Developer, we will discuss the advantages of this approach to Kent State and whether this successful development could be generalized for use in other academic libraries. Speakers: Kay Downey and Rick Wiggins from Kent State University. Moderator: Josephine Crawford, Kansas State University.
