Collection Development Issues for the Practitioner Interest Group (ALCTS CMDS) Community
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.

As a collection manager, are you struggling to create an efficient review and selection workflow for electronic resources BEFORE records can be added to your ILS and ERM systems? Are you bogged down by publisher and vendor sudden deadlines coupled by email overload? Come learn about the Kent State University Libraries’ development of a system to manage the resource selection process. After presentations by Kay Downey, Collection Management Librarian, and Rick Wiggins, Lead Applications Developer, we will discuss the advantages of this approach to Kent State and whether this successful development could be generalized for use in other academic libraries. Speakers: Kay Downey and Rick Wiggins from Kent State University. Moderator: Josephine Crawford, Kansas State University.
