Patron Driven Acquisition in Consortia Program Anaheim Convention Center
213D
Description :

Patron-driven acquisition and purchase-on-demand models are being tested in multi-type and same-type library systems and consortia in several pockets of the country. These pilots empower patrons to select print materials, e-books or both for their local library collection while meeting their own immediate information needs. These initiatives allow libraries to test specific theories to gauge the impact a patron-driven acquisition model will have on local and regional collections, circulation, budgets, usage and user services. Join us as we learn from a panel of speakers about some of these initiatives and their outcomes.

Economy Driven Acquisitions: Difficult Realities, New Potential Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 13
Description :

A commitment to support distant students with electronic content, a shrinking state budget, and inflation led Cline Library at Northern Arizona University (NAU) to allocate the majority of the acquisitions budget to continuing resources; meanwhile, the monograph collection languished, dated and irrelevant. Traditional collection development became a remote luxury since monographic funds were stretched to cover content needed for specific courses. Financial constraints forced the analysis and rejection of former acquisition models and led to processes that updated library content and supported user information needs while expending fewer library resources. After evaluating Purchase on Demand (PDA) models, NAU selected one that best meets University needs. Based on subject profiles, 45,000 records were added to the catalog and the real work of maintenance and monitoring funds began. Webinars and previous experience facilitated planning for record maintenance, but as the process progressed unforeseen challenges arose. Success of the unmediated acquisitions pilot was determined by statistics, rate of expenditure of funds, suitability of titles purchased. The poster features statistics and graphs that represent the criteria used for evaluation and includes valuable considerations for planning and process development that can be applied to future user driven acquisition models.

Libraries on Demand: Building a User-Driven Collection with Ex Libris Alma Vendor demonstration/activity Anaheim Convention Center
207C
Description :

As budgets tighten, ensuring maximum usage of the collection is more important now than ever. Libraries are increasingly supplementing their collection development policies with “just-in-time” models of collection development—purchasing and delivering resources at the point of need. Ex Libris’ next-generation library management service, Alma, is designed to allow libraries to shift toward user-driven models of purchasing for both print and electronic resources, in order to increase usage and decrease the overall cost of their collections. Come see how Alma will help libraries build out their collections just in time, rather than just in case.
