Shared Print Monographs: Making It Work [$] Preconference/Institute McCormick Place Convention Center
Description :

To date, shared print programs have focused largely on journals. Monographs pose a different challenge, and require new approaches. Information from circulation and holdings records can help libraries share responsibility for print collections, while enabling careful drawdown of surplus copies and protection of the scholarly record.

This preconference will highlight the experiences of several groups: Michigan Shared Print Initiative, Connect New York, Maine Shared Collection Strategy, the California State University system, and others.

CD Practitioners-- Let’s Re-Purpose Order Request Data

Come discuss how order request data can enhance the assessment and communication work of collection development practitioners.

This discussion will be framed in the context of paperless workflow for monograph, serial and electronic resource order data. Leading the discussion will be University of Notre Dame Acquisitions Librarians Andy Langhurst and Laura Sill, and Web & Development Analyst Jaron Kennel. The moderators plan to prime the discussion by introducing how three local online systems currently in use by collection managers at Notre Dame assist in communicating, gathering, reporting and evaluating order request data.

Come ready to share what order request information you track as a collection manager? How do you use this information and with whom do you share it? How might this information be captured, enhanced and repackaged to better meet your needs as a collection manager?
Plenty of time will be made available to hear from attendees, so come share your experiences and idea wish lists! We look forward to seeing you at the discussion.

ORCID: Facilitating Interoperability for Research Universities

Rebecca Bryant
Director of Community, ORCID

ORCID is an international, interdisciplinary, not-for-profit, community-driven organization that provides an open registry of persistent unique identifiers for researchers and scholars. ORCID also automates linkages to research works by embedding identifiers in research workflows. In this presentation, we will discuss the opportunities and benefits of university integration with ORCID, share current integration user cases at universities and funding agencies, and provide information about how institutions can become ORCID members.

The Library Publishing Coalition Project: Building Capacity for an Emerging Area of Library Service Provision

Charles Watkinson
Executive Group, Library Publishing Coalition
Director, Purdue University Press
Head of Scholarly Publishing Services, Purdue Libraries

The Library Publishing Coalition Project is a two year program that began in January 2013 to build a collaborative framework to support the development of library publishing services in academic libraries. In 2012 a project sponsored by IMLS, "Library Publishing Services: Strategies for Success," reported that 55% of academic libraries of all sizes were either developing or implementing library services (including 79% of ARL libraries). It identified major needs for the development of best practices, collaboration to create community-based resources, and formalization of skills and training. The LPC project represents the response of a group of over fifty North American libraries to these recommendations. Programs currently under development include the publication of a directory of library publishing programs, the first of its kind; the organization of an annual meeting, to be first held in 2014; the creation of an online repository for sharing useful publishing tools, workflows, and documents; and the deployment of a targeted research agenda. This presentation will give an overview of library publishing activities as currently understood, describe how the LPC project fits into this landscape, and provide an update on progress so far. Plenty of time will be left for feedback and discussion.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

Collection Evaluation and Assessment Interest Group Discussion/Interest group McCormick Place Convention Center
Description :

This session highlights 4 different approaches to evaluating and assessing collections: A focused study using citation analysis, a detailed study of ILL requests and circulation data, a consortia wide strategy to provide members with ways to analyze their collections and also an analysis of usage by platform, comparing a locally created platform with a publisher created one.

Using SCOPUS To Study Citing Behavior For Collection Development
Irene Ke, University of Houston

With increasingly restricted budgetary conditions and greater emphasis on accountability, it is important that we still continue to enhance the quality and relevancy of our collections and generate evidence that links our collections to campus scholarly output. Citation analysis can help us do both. Our study took advantage of features in SCOPUS to make the work of citation analysis much less time-intensive. It aimed to examine how psychology researchers use information for their work and how the library collections have contributed to the university’s scholarly output by analyzing the references cited in articles published by psychology researchers at the University of Houston over the past 10 years.

Using Acquisitions, Circulation, and ILL Data to Study Collection Practices
Forrest E. Link, The College of New Jersey Library

Librarians at TCNJ wanted to assess how well recent acquisitions were meeting user needs and learn what ILL requests might reveal concerning deficits in our collection. To do this, we extracted circulation data for titles purchased between 2008 and 2012 with imprint dates of 2007-2011 and OCLC ILL user statistics for the past four fiscal years (July 2008-June 2012) with imprints from 2007 onward. While the initial goal was to discover the conditions under which ILL demand-driven acquisitions might be appropriate, in the process of gathering and analyzing data further questions arose concerning our assumptions about what ILL data reveals about both our collections and our borrowers.

What’s the Big Deal? Collection Evaluation at the National Level
Eva Jurczyk, Canadian Research Knowledge Network

The CRKN is a partnership of 75 universities dedicated to expanding digital content for the university research enterprise in Canada. This presentation will discuss two assessment methodologies that allow member institutions to evaluate their participation in consortia Big Deals, and to identify key journals for their institutions. The first method assesses the cost-per-use of high use journals in a big deal package and the second method, modified from the methodology set out by the California Digital Library, assesses journal packages by measuring the quality, utility, and value of individual titles.
Mine or theirs, where do users go? A comparison of collection usage at locally hosted platforms versus publisher platforms

Juleah Swanson, Ohio State University Libraries

This presentation will share research on recent trends in usage of electronic content by platform, comparing patron usage at a publisher platform, Elsevier’s Science Direct, to patron usage of the same content at a locally hosted platform, OhioLINK’s Electronic Journal Center. From the data, this presentation will open up a discussion on whether there is a continued place for locally hosted digital collections in our libraries; as well as what the long term implications are for relying on publisher platforms for our collections

Sunday, June 30 - 3:00pm

3:00pm - 4:00pm
Collection Management and Electronic Resources Interest Group Discussion/Interest group McCormick Place Convention Center
Description :

What does it take to manage electronic resources? Join the Collection Management and Electronic Resources Interest Group at ALA to find out. The interest group will lead a discussion about the fundamentals of electronic resources management based on the Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians developed by the NASIG (North American Serials Interest Group) Core Competencies Task Force in 2012. NASIG identified seven competencies which e-resources librarians should possess to effectively manage electronic resources. These competencies are knowledge of the e-resources life cycle, technology, research skills, effective communication, supervision & management skills, awareness of trends & professional development, and person qualities (i.e. flexibility). A short presentation on the NASIG Core Competencies by Jeannie Castro & Kelsey Brett, University of Houston, will be followed by a discussion. Please bring your questions and experiences about managing e-resources to share.
