Transcript of "Library Strategic Plan"

  1. 1. N. L. Terteling Library Albertson College of Idaho Strategic Plan 2005-2010 The N. L. Terteling Library is committed to its role of providing information resources and services that support the mission of the College. Yet the library faces a “continually declining situation” with concerns including a “barely adequate” collection, “dated, unattractive” facilities and a staff that is “unusually small by any standard.”1 In response to the goals outlined in the Vision & Strategy Task Force Plan, and in preparation for the deliberations of the VSTF II, this strategic plan will sketch a vision for the library in 2010 and provide an outline of the goals that must be accomplished in order to realize this vision. N. L. Terteling Library, Vision for 2010 The library’s place at the heart of academic life on campus will be restored with the renovation of the N. L. Terteling library building and the rejuvenation of the library’s collections, both in print and online. The re- configured building will be responsive to the ways in which students use the library, providing ample room for group study and easy access to information technology. Online information resources appropriate for every subject taught and studied at the College will be accessible from any computer on or off campus. A professional staff of 2.5 librarians will work in cooperation with teaching faculty to develop students’ competence in finding, evaluating and using information. Library Goals The first four goals listed here – to renovate the library facilities, upgrade technology, increase the collection development budget and increase professional staffing – could all qualify for top ranking in a list of library needs and priorities. These goals are outlined here with the supporting data decision makers may need to determine their own priorities. The remaining three goals – to improve accessibility of resources, improve assessment and promote and encourage reading and lifelong learning – are supportive of the first four. Though not unimportant and, in fact, vital to the library’s fulfillment of its mission, these goals form a second tier of library needs. 1. Renovate facilities The 2002 accreditation evaluation report said it best: “On a campus with many beautiful new and renovated buildings, the library fairly screams it lack of importance.” 2 The N. L. Terteling Library building is outdated, unattractive and poorly laid out for modern library service. The renovation of the library’s facilities is discussed in the Campus Master Plan – Facilities. The applicable text from this plan has been included in Appendix A. In summary, a relatively inexpensive library remodel (estimated at $400,000 - $500,000) could provide updated finishes (including carpet and paint), more efficient lighting and updated furniture appropriate for the ways in which students now use the library. 2. Upgrade technology • Upgrade library catalog hardware and software • Enlarge computer lab on main level of library to enhance teaching mission of library • Move all computers and peripherals to the main level to improve security and support • Obtain a microfilm scanner to link old technology with new The first two of these points have been discussed in the Campus Master Plan - Information Technology. The applicable text from this plan has been included in Appendix A. The upgrade of the library’s catalog system, in collaboration the Riley Library at Northwest Nazarene University, with 1 Northwest Association of Schools and of Colleges and Universities; Commission on Colleges and Universities, Full-Scale Evaluation Committee Report, 2002 2 Ibid.

  2. 2. whom we will be combining systems, has been included in the FY06 capital budget, though negotiations and planning are still underway. As discussed in the IT plan, a larger classroom-style lab is needed in the library in order that it may fulfill its teaching mission. The relocation of all computers and peripherals to the main level of the library would improve the library staff’s ability to monitor and support the use of this equipment. A microfilm scanner, available at a cost of approximately $5,300, would enable library users to scan microfilm journals and newspapers directly into a computer, from which the files could be emailed, printed and saved. Materials in this format, in which the library has made a substantial investment over the years, would no longer be an object of annoyance for students and faculty. 3. Increase budget for resources • Increase collection development budget. • Increase serials/electronic resources budget annually to compensate for cost increases. • $1,500 allocation for library purchases for each new faculty hire • Appropriate online subscription resources for every subject area As shown in Appendix B, the College spent just $6,149 on books, just $8 per FTE student, in FY04. Libraries at liberal arts institutions ranked 80-100 by U.S. News & World Report3 spent an average of $90 per student in FY02.4 Northwest Association of Private Colleges and Universities (NAPCU) institutions that have top-100 U.S. News & World Report rankings spent a range of $236,975 – $690,621 or $113 - $530 per FTE in FY04. If our goal would be to allocate $120 per FTE5 for book purchases by 2010, we would, by this time be spending $122,400 ($120 x 1020 FTE) on books each year. A small portion of this funding could come from the NEH endowment, which was not utilized in FY04, yet the NEH funds cannot be relied upon as the sole source for library materials budgets in humanities disciplines, and of course do not cover the wide range of fields not addressed by NEH, including the sciences, education and business. Though NEH funds were once used to obtain items such as expensive reference materials and non-curricular items such as contemporary works of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction, in recent years the funds have instead been utilized as the only source of library materials funding for the humanities. It was a recommendation of the Commission on College’s 1992 Evaluation Report6 that the library materials budget be supplemented “to a sufficient level to permit NEH funds to be used for enrichment and not maintenance.” Unfortunately, spending on books is not the only area in which the library’s materials budget is under strain. A January 2005 analysis by EBSCO Subscription Services shows that based on four years of comparative data the average annual increase in the cost of the Terteling Library’s periodical subscriptions is 10%. In 2004-05, the library has spent $58,613 on subscriptions. In just five years, rising 10% per year, these same subscriptions are likely to cost $94,397. In the past several years, the library has compensated for these rising costs by canceling subscriptions. But the library now maintains subscriptions to only 320 periodical titles, down from 822 titles in 2000 (and compared to an average of 2,420 at US News 80-100 institutions). Little remains to be cancelled. Like paper periodical subscriptions, electronic resources see annual price increases. Though subscriptions to some resources such as JSTOR remain static and others have seen decreases in recent years due to new pricing models and the library’s efforts in seeking out new vendors and 3 Hereafter referred to as “US News 80-100.” 4 FY02 data is the most current available from the NCES Academic Library Survey and therefore the most current available for US News 80-100 libraries. NAPCU data is available from FY04 through an agreement among NAPCU libraries. FY02 and FY04 NAPCU figures were compared to determine an average change in expenditures that could be used to estimate an average change for the US News 80-100 libraries, but the NAPCU expenditure changes were insignificant. Therefore, the use of 2002 US News 80-100 figures and 2004 ACI and NAPCU figures is retained throughout this plan. 5 The goal of $120 is suggested in light of the 4.5% average annual increase currently being seen in scholarly book prices. At this rate today’s NAPCU average of $107 would need to be $133 in five years to buy the same number of titles. The “US News 80-100” average of $90 would need to be $112. 6 Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges Commission on Colleges Evaluation Committee Report, 1992, Standard 5. N. L.

  3. 3. group-purchasing options, the remaining resources have seen price increases of between 5-12%, with an average increase of 7%. Assuming a 7% annual cost increase for all of the databases without fixed costs, this means that our current $63,536 costs for electronic resources are likely to be $86,968 by 2010. Thus, if the library’s goal were to bring book budgets up to a comparable level (close to the US News 80-100 and NAPCU averages for dollars spent on books per FTE student) and to maintain its current periodical and database subscriptions, an increase in the library’s base budget of at least $35,500 per year for each of five years would be required. The following bar chart illustrates these proposed budget increases and their utilization. Proposed Library Materials Budget $35.5K increase each year for 5 years, No changes in periodical subscriptions, no additional electronic resources 350,000.00 $124,432 to be spent on books in 2009-10. $121/ 300,000.00 FTE student if enrollment of 1020 FTE. 250,000.00 Books Spending 200,000.00 Serials 150,000.00 Databases 100,000.00 50,000.00 0.00 2004-05 2005-06 2006-07 2007-08 2008-09 2009-10 Year These funds would not address the remaining need to add appropriate electronic resources for a number of academic disciplines which do not yet have adequate online research tools or access to appropriate online full text journal literature. Appendix C provides a list of such resources, with estimated annual costs when available. As shown in Appendix C, if emphasis were placed on the addition of high-need but relatively low-cost resources, several needed electronic resources could be added if the proposed budget were modified as shown in the following bar chart (based on proposed budget above and dollar figures provided in Appendix C): N. L. Terteling Library Strategic Plan Albertson College of Idaho 5/31/2010 Page 3 of 13
  4. 4. Alternative Proposed Library M aterials Budget $35.5K increase each year for 5 years (as above) No changes in periodical subscriptions Priority (low cost, high need) electronic resources added 400,000.00 350,000.00 300,000.00 New Databases Books 250,000.00 Serials Spending 200,000.00 Databases 150,000.00 100,000.00 50,000.00 0.00 2004-05 2005-06 2006-07 2007-08 2008-09 2009-10 Year One additional recommendation would be the allocation of at least $1,500 for each new faculty hire to be spent by the new faculty member (in collaboration library faculty) on library resources. Because the library’s materials selection process has historically relied so heavily on faculty input, each new faculty member needs the opportunity to add resources that directly address his or her own particular teaching emphases. 4. Increase professional staffing • Increase professional staffing to 2.5 FTE librarians In 2002, when the library staff was twice its current size7, the accreditation report8 noted that “the size of the library staff is unusually small by any standard.” As shown in Appendix D, the library currently has the highest ratio of FTE students to FTE librarians in NAPCU and a far higher ratio than any US News 80-100 institution. There is an urgent need to increase professional staffing in the library. A part-time librarian has been budgeted for FY06, but it is essential that an additional full-time librarian (library faculty) be hired in the near future. Such a librarian would need to be hired with a starting salary befitting their probable rank of Assistant Professor. 5. Improve accessibility of resources • Enhance indexing in Library Catalog • Journal locator service Library materials are of little value if they are not used. Currently two factors complicate and obstruct the use of the library’s collections. The first of these, the limited indexing in the library’s catalog (the inability to search for keywords anywhere except in book titles…not, for example, in tables of contents or subject headings), will be addressed by the library catalog upgrade already budgeted for FY06, 7 In 2002 the library had 2 professional librarians (library faculty) and 6 support staff. The library now has 1 professional librarian and 3 support staff. 8 Ibid N. L. Terteling Library Strategic Plan Albertson College of Idaho 5/31/2010 Page 4 of 13
  5. 5. which includes enhanced indexing. The second factor is a situation faced by any library that is juggling a mix of print and electronic journals, with the electronic journals being supplied, by necessity, from a number of different vendors in a number of different formats. Students and other library users don’t know where and how to locate the specific journals that they need. Journal locator services are available that create and maintain an alphabetic list of all journals to which a library has access (something that changes from month to month as database contents change) and provide links and instructions for library users needing to access these titles. Vendors of such services include Serials Solutions, from whom the service would cost an estimated $1,500 -$2,500per year. 6. Improve assessment • Review ACRL Standards for Libraries in Higher Education • Surveys of faculty, students and other library users • WorldCat Collection Analysis The library needs to continue to develop its own program of assessment and work to identify appropriate ways to participate in college-wide assessment activities. The newly (2004) revised Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Standards for Libraries in Higher Education should be studied as one avenue of assessment. A schedule of surveying (or otherwise collecting input) from library users needs to be developed in collaboration with the Institutional Research Department. In assessing the library’s collections, one invaluable tool would be the WorldCat Collection Analysis service which allows users to compare holdings in specific subject areas with peer academic libraries and create reports to support strategic collection planning. This service has a one-time start-up fee of $500 and an ongoing annual subscription cost of $3,500. 7. Promote and encourage reading and lifelong learning • Increased funding for contemporary fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction • Increase funding for media collections, including DVD’s and music CD’s • Funding for a collection of audio books For the liberal arts student or graduate, reading is an essential activity. When the library receives donations of current contemporary fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction - and donations are currently nearly the only source for such materials - these books are quickly and enthusiastically snapped off the “new book shelf” by the many eager readers that populate our campus. Likewise, the library’s small and idiosyncratic media collection (video, DVD and CD) sees a degree of use far greater than would be expected considering the collection’s significant limitations. Though deficiencies in the funding for curriculum-related library materials must be addressed first, the development of a selective but up-to-date collection of contemporary fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and media (including the possible addition of audio books) should be considered an essential component of the library’s mission. NEH funds, if made available for collection enhancement instead of basic collection development as recommended by the 1992 accreditation report, could be directed towards such a goal. N. L.

  6. 6. College Rankings & the Library A frequently asked question: Is the quality of a college’s library a factor in its ranking by U.S. News & World Report and other sources? U.S. News utilizes the information collected in the Common Data Set (CDS), a collaborative effort of several higher education data providers. The 2004-05 CDS did not collect data on library collections; however the CDS will collect library data again when a new Academic Libraries Survey (ALS) is fielded. The ALS is a biennial survey conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics. The survey was fielded in 2004-05. Thus, it is to be expected that the 2004-05 ALS results (which collected data on the 2003-04 academic/fiscal year) will be collected and utilized in the 2005-06 CDS. In short, yes, library data does appear to be a factor in the rankings, but only every other year. Much of the data used in this plan and its appendices was drawn from either the 2004-05 ALS results (which are collected and shared among NAPCU libraries though not yet publicly available) or the 2002-03 ALS results (which are available to the public).

  7. 7. Appendix A From ACI Campus Master Plan – Facilities, 2005-2010 Terteling Library The library’s role on campus remains central to teaching and learning, yet the current building is dated, unattractive and poorly laid out for modern library service. A relatively inexpensive remodel could provide updated finishes, carpeting and paint and a general cleaning of surfaces including the walls and ceiling. Other considerations should include the installation of better and more efficient task lighting, the use of office systems furniture in place of the outdated and rarely-used study carrels and the re-evaluation of the overall layout of the library. An updated and enlarged computer lab would enhance the library’s ability to fulfill its teaching mission. Estimated Costs $400,000 - $500,000 Possible Funding Sources Funding for this project could be secured in the form of a one-time gift or a series of smaller gifts enabling the project to be completed in phases. From ACI Campus Master Plan – Information Technology, 2005-2010 Library Issues The library faces two primary IT concerns which impact its ability to fulfill its teaching and academic support role on campus: an outdated online catalog system and a lack of sufficient computer lab space for teaching. Online Catalog System The library’s online catalog (an Innovative Interfaces system) currently resides on a DEC Alpha 200. The speed and disc space on this server will not accommodate any future releases of Innovative Interfaces software. In addition, the terminal/character-based product currently used in the library for cataloging and circulation is no longer being developed beyond routine maintenance fixes, with all enhancements focused on Innovative’s graphical interface product, Millennium. A January 2005 quote from Innovative Interfaces set the cost of upgrading the server and migrating to the fully functional Millennium product at $79,732. Because the library at Northwest Nazarene University is facing similar concerns, the library is now working with NNU, Innovative and an alternative vendor to study the possibility of combining the ACI and NNU catalog systems and sharing a server. A January 2005 quote from Innovative put the cost for a shared system at $135,872. Innovative Interfaces currently charges ACI an annual maintenance fee of $19,380 (04-05 cost). In a combined ACI-NNU system ACI maintenance costs would be estimated to be closer to $15,000. Library Computer Lab The library’s main-level computer lab has 7 computers; this is the largest computer lab in the library. Classes regularly visit the library for instructional sessions on using online and print library resources. It is not uncommon for classes of 20-25 students to utilize this 7-PC lab. A classroom style lab is needed in the library for such instruction, but such a lab could not accommodate regularly scheduled classes, as such scheduling would compromise its availability for library instruction.

  10. 10. Appendix C Electronic Resources If the library were to meet its goal of having appropriate online subscription resources for every subject area, the following resources would need to be considered for addition. Costs given are estimated annual costs based on the latest quotes available. Nearly all would be subject to annual cost increases currently averaging 7%. Anthropology **AnthroSource – Full text online access to American Anthropological Association journals. $645/year Art ARTstor – A digital image library. $9,000 the first year, $3,000 each year after that (no annual price increases to be anticipated) Bibliography of the History of Art – Comprehensive art history database. No current price quote available but estimated at $3,500-$4,000/year **Grove Art Online - $1,500/year Biology **JSTOR Biological Sciences Collection – Includes content from BioOne. New collection announced April 2005, to be completed by 2007. $2,980 the first year, $1080 each year after that (no annual price increases to be anticipated) Nature journals online – Online full text. Request for price quote is pending BIOSIS – Comprehensive biology database. Each year of indexing subscribed to individually. No current price quote available but estimated at $22-$26K per year of indexing per year. Business Business Source Premier - (ACI subscription) – We are currently relying on the Idaho State Library’s LiLI program to provide access to this database, which makes this resource more complicated to use and gives the library no ability to link this resource with other subscription databases and journal holdings. No current price quote available but estimated at $10,500/year Chemistry **ACS Journal Archives - $1,550/year SciFinder Scholar – Comprehensive chemistry database. No current price quote available but estimated at $25K/year Music **Grove Music Online - $1,500/year Religion **ATLA Religion Online – Bibliographic database on religion. No current price quote available but estimated at $5,000-$7,000/year. N. L. Terteling Library Strategic Plan Albertson College of Idaho 5/31/2010 Page 10 of 13
  11. 11. Physical Education **SportDiscus – Bibliographic database on sports, fitness and physical education. No current price quote available but estimated at $1,600/year Political Economy PAIS International – Bibliographic database on public policy and political science. No current price quote available but estimated at $5,000-$7,000/year Physics, Mathematics and Geology Resources for Physics, Math and Geology have not been included on this list, though online information resources are, of course, available (at substantial cost) for these fields. In consultation with the faculty in the Mathematical & Physical Sciences Department it should be determined if the research being conducted on campus in these fields merits the high costs of these resources. Pay-per-search options might be available and could be considered, though such options would require careful budgeting. Multiple Subjects **NetLibrary Shared Academic e-Book Collections and Subject Sets – For one-time fees ranging from of $1,200 to $6,200 these collections would provide access to a pre-selected group of scholarly e-books. Annual Reviews Online – Online access to 31 Annual Reviews in the sciences and social sciences. $5,500/year for current year, plus one-time $5,500 purchase of the Annual Reviews Back Volume Collection. Web of Science – Access to citation indexes in the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities, frequently requested by faculty.
