  • Project Goals Workable strategy for stewardship of the major print collections in Maine ◦ Analyze print monographs (primary focus) and journals for duplication, use, and retention decisions ◦ Identify digital surrogates that can be used in lieu of (or in addition to) print, and provide access to them in MaineCat ◦ Identify which library/libraries are committed to retention of print materials for the long-term
  • Project Goals Implementation of on-demand services ◦ Electronic and print-on-demand options ◦ Incorporates digitization request option ◦ Provide owned and not-owned titles
  • Current Activities OCLC Reclamation Collection Analysis Exploring Print-on-Demand options
  • Current – OCLC Reclamation ◦ Data clean-up ◦ Ensure common fields for Collection Analysis  E.g. add OCLC numbers if none present ◦ Process  Submit partner requests to OCLC  OCLC adds holdings statements, updates OCLC #s, etc.  Error reports returned for corrections at local level
  • Current - Collection Analysis WCA – WorldCat Collection Analysis “group” subscription begins soon Includes comparison of partner holdings (journals, monographs, musical scores) in multiple formats (print, microform, electronic) Identify rare items within US; among partners
  • Current - Collection Analysis Data to be considered ◦ Number of copies among partners ◦ Publication date ◦ Availability of secure digital copy ◦ Uniqueness / rarity ◦ Circulation statistics ◦ Acquisition date
  • Exploring Print-on-Demandoptions Easy discovery and immediate access to electronic for patron in online catalog Makes many fragile, rare titles available 24/7 Option to order print copy for library or direct patron purchase Option to request digitization-on- demand for selected titles
  • Exploring Print-on-Demandoptions Catalog example (From Western Libraries, Ontario shared catalog)
  • Future Plans Where do we want to go and do? ◦ Data will drive decision-making ◦ Decide on retention policies, document decisions ◦ Develop a storage model ◦ Make informed, collaborative collection development decisions How will this impact other Maine libraries? ◦ Ability to weed
