Let the Bidding Begin : Ruminations on the RFP Process from the Vendor, Cooperative, & Library Perspectives

Let the Bidding Begin : Ruminations on the RFP Process from the Vendor, Cooperative, & Library Perspectives

Request For Proposal (RFP) is a process most librarians encounter and something all library service groups and companies have experience with. In this session we will look at the three viewpoints: Academic/University Librarian, Not-For-Profit organization, and Vendor representative. The Academic/University librarian will address both generic and specific items (to his university) that are considered essential in an RFP. The Not-for-profit organization representative will look at both how they respond to RFP as well as what they require in an RFP, having a unique perspective of both sending out and receiving RFPs. The Vendor representative will review how the vendor reviews and responds to RFP, including what is wished for and what is often missing.

Speakers:
· Mike Thompson, Head of Acquisitions at the University of Houston
· Arta Kabashi, Consulting and Education Services Manager at Amigos Library Services
· Carol Seiler, Account Services Manager at EBSCO Information Services

“Using what we’ve got – analyzing data in a useful way”
The panelists are: Leslie Button, Associate Director for Library Services, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Krista Coulson, Digital Publishing Manager, University of Chicago Press, and Daniel Dollar, Director of Collection Development, Yale University Library

The Acquisitions Managers and Vendors IG will be discussing the following topic at ALA Midwinter 2015:

“Using what we’ve got – analyzing data in a useful way”
The panelists are: Leslie Button, Associate Director for Library Services, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Krista Coulson, Digital Publishing Manager, University of Chicago Press, and Daniel Dollar, Director of Collection Development, Yale University Library

Usage data has become more and more important in collection development, but how are librarians to use this information in a way that informs collections thoughtfully? Should historical usage drive acquisitions, or should collections be built with maximum usage in mind? What kinds of decisions are made based on usage patterns? How much weight should be given to usage versus “just in case” collection building. The panelists will speak of best practices for obtaining, analyzing, and putting to use the myriad data available today.

Please bring questions for the panel and join the discussion!

Migratory Behavior – Maintaining External Integration Amid an ILS Migration
To operate effectively, modern libraries have integrated their various internal systems with a myriad of external systems. While such integration allows libraries to deliver efficient, accurate, point-of-need services, it creates special challenges whenever the inputs or outputs from any of these systems are altered. One of the most significant alterations to this labyrinth of connected systems occurs when a library migrates to a new Integrated Library System (ILS).

To operate effectively, modern libraries have integrated their various internal systems with a myriad of external systems.

One of the most significant alterations to this labyrinth of connected systems occurs when a library migrates to a new Integrated Library System (ILS).
In addition to migrating internal data and workflows to the new ILS, the library must also manage the changes necessary to ensure that critical transfers of information with outside systems are maintained. This session will take a look at ILS migrations from the library acquisitions perspective focusing on the cooperative steps taken by libraries and vendors to ensure that order record downloads can continue, EDI invoice transfers are not interrupted, payment data can still be output to institutional financial systems, etc.
Panelists:
• Beth Bernhardt (Assistant Dean for Collection Management and Scholarly Communications, University of North Carolina, Greensboro Libraries – OCLC’s WorldShare Management System)

• Janet Morrow (Head, Resource and Discovery Services, Northeastern University Snell Library – Ex Libris’ Alma)

• Deborah Silverman (New Business Development Manager, Library Technical Services at YBP Library Services – Various Systems)
