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.

Alma Analytics: Making the Most of Your Library's Data Vendor demonstration/activity Hilton Anaheim
San Simeon B
Description :

Increasingly under pressure to demonstrate their value to the objectives of the institution or consortium, libraries are looking for ever more creative ways to improve efficiency and productivity. Powerful analytic capabilities enable libraries to put numbers on their value and to expose tangible evidence of their leading role in the academic lifecycle. From usage data and onwards, analytics shed light on the inner workings of the entire institution, as well as those of the library. Valuable insight into libraries’ operation can be gained via purchasing trends, comparative analysis, and even predictive analysis—helping managers to better to plan their daily operation. During this session will explore ways in which Alma Analytics can take libraries into the next generation.

Electronic Resources Management Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Anaheim Convention Center
201A
Description :

This session of the ERM Interest Group focuses on the role that library initiated ERMS continue to play in the ERM marketplace. Major developments are taking place with the focus on ILS and ERM integration in systems such as ExLibris’ ALMA, Innovative’s Sierra and the Kuali OLE project but many libraries still choose to develop their own ERMS or turn to solutions created and offered by other libraries such as CUFTS, CORAL, ERMes and Gold Rush. This session includes presentations from representatives of these library initiated ERMS and will highlight the value and impact that these systems continue to have on the ERMS marketplace both now and in the future.
