RUSA CODES/STARS program, "Cooperative Monographic Collection Development – Recent Trends” ALA AnnualJune 23, 2007Washington, DCLibraries have a long, but only moderately successful, history of attempts at cooperative collection development of monographs. With a record of success in sharing access to electronic resources, and with improved technology for discovery and delivery of print resources, combined with ever shrinking budgets, now may be the time for success in these ventures. This program will present the experiences of five groups of libraries in sharing monographic collection responsibilities.Speakers:

  • Kathryn M. Crowe, Associate Director, University Libraries, UNC Greensboro – Introduction and historical overview.
  • Julia Gammon, Head of Acquisitions Department, University of Akron – Recent developments in cooperative collection development of monographs in OhioLINK.
  • Ewa Elizabeth Barczyk, Director, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee Libraries – Cooperation within the UW System, specifically a study to identify degree of duplication of monographs between libraries.
  • Eric Pumroy, Director of Library Collections, Bryn Mawr College – The Tri-Colleges Shared Approval Plan, a pilot project.
  • Michael Levine-Clark, Collections Librarian, Penrose Library, University of Denver – The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries Shared Purchase Plan, a pilot project to control duplication of monographs.
  • Susi Seiler, Head of Technical Services, Alvin Sherman Library, Research and Information Technology Center – Cooperation between public and academic institutions in one library.

This article discusses ways in which libraries can be effective in arranging cooperative purchases of electronic resources.   The author states that libraries must begin to look at themselves as knowledge providers rather than mere collection managers. To do this the library must view itself as a place of “production of information by local users”.   Libraries can achieve this goal in a cooperative manner in part by building databases and repositories of locally produced materials and sharing them with scholars at other institutions.  In addition to maintaining the core secondary resources libraries can work cooperatively to insure that the more valuable and less used primary source materials are also held by some institutions.

            This article discusses impediments that have traditionally hindered efforts at cooperative collection development and consortial purchasing among libraries, particularly in the area of electronic resources, and proposes some remedies to overcome these impediments.  By recognizing the competition that is inherent among similar libraries, that any cooperative effort will be evaluated on the basis of how well it helps the libraries local users, and that libraries will not enter into agreements that will weaken them in relation to other libraries, one can realistically propose a model for the collective purchase of electronic resources.  Even assuming that libraries will continue to sign restrictive licenses that prevent them from sharing content with other institutions, the author proposes that libraries can still collaborate on the purchase of other materials, thereby freeing up funds for the individual purchase of electronic products. 

            Finally, the author states that libraries have cooperated with publishers to get a better deal for themselves.  In the future, particularly in the case of electronic resources, libraries should look at cooperating amongst themselves and yielding more influence on the same plane as publishers and other information providers.  Libraries need to put aside past competitiveness and excuses if they want to become knowledge managers and not become secondary to other information providers.

Fowler, D. C. (2005). Licensing: An Historical Perspective. Journal of Library Administration, 42(3/4), 177-197.

David Fowler provides a background on the licensing of electronic resources for libraries.  After providing definitions of some of the most common terms used in licensing (such as End User Agreement, Suite License Agreement, and other basic terminology) and listing the common components of a license for an electronic resource, Fowler provides a historical background of how these licenses have evolved in the past decade. Of principal importance is the growing uniformity of licensing agreements that saves both vendor/publishers and libraries valuable time that had been spent negotiating unique licenses for every electronic product offered by a publisher.  Other topics discussed include the development of site licenses and proxy servers that most publishers encourage now but were initially resistant to, questions of ILL Rights, course packs and e-reserves, authorized users, maintenance fees, and a plethora of legal questions that arise during discussions of licensing agreements.  This article can serve as a good primer for anyone who is new to the licensing of electronic resources.
