Lightning Round Discussion Topics in Las Vegas
When: Saturday, June 28, 2014, from 1:00-2:30pm
Where: Las Vegas Conference Center, Room N203
There are forces of change requiring new approaches by collection development practitioners. Join us for a whirlwind discussion of some current trends...

1) Who should be the selector? The librarian or the users?

Moving from philosophical to the practical implications of user-selection models, how do collection development practitioners handle this important question? Which DDA/PDA/POD models work the best? How to shape profiles to get the most of these opportunities? What are the budgetary implications? Which assessment approaches are the most useful?

2) What are successful methods to predict coming collection needs?

Your collection is a living organism that must be adapted to changing needs on your campus. Past usage, ILL statistics, and anecdotal evidence from users has its place. Beyond this, how do you stay informed on needs and what additional data do you collect to predict collection needs? Are you able to use your predictive data for the purpose of budget development and collection expansion?

3) To collect or not to collect: collection decisions of open source materials

Open source content is growing in importance in selection decisions yet has hidden budgetary and user impact. What approaches are in play at academic institutions? How are various disciplines managing this dynamic area of publishing? What next steps can you take to make the most of this lasting publishing trend?

Questions? Suggestions? Would you like to help lead one of these discussion topics?

Please contact Josephine Crawford (IG chair) at jocraw@k-state.edu

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.

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

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.

Identifies the forces of change in the development and management of collections as they affect the individual selector, and as they contribute to the selector’s ability to address and manage these changes. To this end the committee will take such actions as presenting forums and programs, designing guidelines, identifying resources, and collecting and disseminating information.
