ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions
Session 3: July 21- August 29, 2014

This six-week online course is a basic primer for library acquisitions concepts common to all library materials formats. It covers:

·         Goals and methods of acquiring monographs and serials in all formats;

·         Theoretical foundations and workflows of basic acquisitions functions;

·         Financial management of library collections budgets;

·         Relationships among acquisitions librarians, library booksellers, subscription agents, and publishers.


This course provides a broad overview of the operations involved in acquiring materials after the selection decision is made.

In FOA, we distinguish between collection development, which involves the selection of materials for the library; and acquisitions, which orders, receives, and pays for those materials. In many libraries, selecting and acquiring materials may be done in the same department—in the smallest libraries perhaps even by the same person. In larger libraries, selection may be done by a collection development department and/or designated subject specialists, while a separate department acquires the selected materials.  In essence, acquisitions is a business operation, bringing materials into the library and licensing access to library collections and resources.

Who Should Attend:  As a fundamentals course, FOA is tailored for librarians and paraprofessionals new to the acquisitions field; and librarians and support staff from other library units and library school or LSSC students who want to know more about acquisitions.  Although FOA focuses on the acquisition of monographs in various physical formats, it covers key components of acquisition and licensing processes for all library materials, in all formats, in all types of libraries.

This course is one-third of the Collection Management Elective course approved by the Library Support Staff Certification Program (LSSCP).

Because success in acquisitions depends on ability to collaborate, negotiate, and be flexible to work out win-win solutions with others, this course includes collaborative and social elements.

Instructors

  • Betsy Redman, Acquisitions Serials Librarian, Arizona State University

  • Eleanor Cook, Assistant Director for Discovery & Technical Services Academic Library Services, East Carolina University

  • Michelle Flinchbaugh, Acquisitions and Digital Scholarship Services Librarian, UMBC Library

  • Donna Smith, Assistant Head of Technical Services, Northern Kentucky University

  • Jennifer Arnold, Director, Library Services, Central Piedmont Community College

Online Doc VRT at ALA Annual Las Vegas: Programs & Events!

by Andrew Horbal on Fri, Apr 18, 2014 at 09:20 am
in VRT (Video Round Table)

Here's a list of official VRT Events being held at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas:

Friday: June 27th

Managing Locally-Produced Born-Digital Media Content (PreConference): 9:00 am – 4:00 pm; Caesars Palace – Neopolitan II

Here's a list of official VRT Events being held at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas:

Friday: June 27th

Managing Locally-Produced Born-Digital Media Content (PreConference): 9:00 am – 4:00 pm; Caesars Palace – Neopolitan II

Libraries are increasingly needing to manage locally-produced media content in born-digital form. This ranges from a university’s public relations videos, to recordings of sporting events, to student thesis projects, to oral histories, to local television and radio programming. It also may include locally-related material that is not handed directly to a library, but is instead posted on websites such as YouTube. This workshop aims to help libraries understand how to understand ingesting and managing this type of content. This ranges from offering advice to content contributors (on preferred file formats, wrappers, and metadata), to file structures and metadata for maintaining a collection, to a variety of methods for providing access, to concerns about ensuring the longevity and integrity of these works. The panel:

  • Howard Besser, Director, Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program 
  • Siobhan Hagan, Audiovisual Archivist, University of Baltimore Langsdale Library
  • Stevel Villereal, Audiovisual Conservator, University of Virginia Library
  • Natalie Milbrodt, Director, Queens Memory Project
  • Stefan Elnabli, Moving Image and Sound Preservation Specialist, Northwestern University Library
  • Yvonne Ng, Archivist, Witness
