Collection Development Issues for the Practitioner Interest Group

Saturday, June 29, 2013
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Central

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.

Josephine Crawford, IG Chair
Irene Ke, IG Vice-Chair
