Tracking, maintaining, and assessing e-resources can seem overwhelming at times.

  • Ways to keep track of pricing, license terms, and admin details for e-resources
  • Best practices for maintaining and troubleshooting resource access
  • Best practices for evaluating the value of electronic subscriptions …

Managing Different Acquisition Models (ALCTS e-Forum)

Date: Tuesday, 7/21/2020 – Wednesday, 7/22/2020 [show times]

Acquisitions work today involves understanding and navigating many different and continually evolving acquisitions models in order to provide our users with access to the materials they need. Different vendors offer vastly different purchasing options, and it can be quite difficult for librarians to manage and keep up with changes. Librarians need to balance the needs of our users with budget realities while also taking the usability of our collections into consideration. Join us for this ALCTS e-Forum to discuss the state of acquisition models and learn how librarians are managing this complex area within their own institutions.

Learning Outcomes

In this e-Forum, attendees will explore:

  • various acquisition models, including demand driven, evidence-based, and collection-based models
  • tips for managing collections through workflows and using various tools
  • how to evaluate usage data to make acquisition decisions
  • compare how use of models differ across institutions

Hosts

Sara Duff is the Acquisitions and Collection Assessment Librarian at the University of Central Florida. She oversees all monograph and streaming video acquisitions for the university.

Nancy Schuler has been the e-Resources and Collection Development Librarian at Eckerd College since 2013. She manages access and discovery for the College’s collections of monographs, ebooks, streaming video, and database content, and serves as the liaison to the Creative Arts Collegium.

  • Barriers to migration
  • Understanding and responding to Baylor’s requirements

Virtual VuFind Summit 2020 Announced

The organizers of the Villanova VuFind Summit and the organizers of the International VuFind Summit 2021 are very happy to announce that they are preparing a Virtual VuFind Summit 2020 in a joint effort in order to have a fantastic community event in early autumn this year despite the difficult circumstances we all are experiencing right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the current restrictions in traveling and social distancing – not to mention the health risks – it is impractical to have the regular Villanova VuFind Summit in Mid-October take place in person. The International VuFind Summit 2020 in Leipzig, scheduled for September 30 until October 2, was also postponed to 2021 for the same reason. As a result, the organizers see this as a chance to bring the international VuFind community together in one event which will be held entirely online as a virtual conference.

The Virtual VuFind Summit will take place from September 29 until October 1, 2020 and will be open for workshops, lightning talks, project presentations and other forms of participation.

A Call for Papers will be opened soon! To receive the latest information on this and other aspects of the event, watch the VuFind wiki for updates: https://vufind.org/wiki/community:conferences:summit_2020
