  • LIBRARY ACQUISITIONS – deliver to discover!
  • discoveRable? An Acquisitions View • MARC or not to MARC • Need the right files to find the right books: RESOURCE DISCOVERY • ftps and files from ebook supplier to link resolver supplier • Easy links and clear contents for your Serials / Eresources colleague to activate • Shorter delay between ordering and availability • Know there are usage stats that can be obtained for Sconul and internal reports – in the right format (BR2 and all that) • OA an answer to DRM
  • SUBJECT – MAKING DISCOVERY EASIER
  • discoveRable? A Subject Librarian’s View • Helping students find the Right material – Making the most of resource discoveRy tools – Whether to select Open Access amongst paid material – Policy decision needed? Eg in lists of recommended subject resources • Reading lists and linked material – Selection and direction – making sure students can find this: training made easier if discovery easier! • Referencing – – accurate bibliographic information to cite and write !
  • Subject Librarian … Readable…
  • Readable? A Subject Librarians’ View MEETING DEMAND • National Student Survey and demand for more eresources • Financial pressures – on students, HE, libraries • Tech Driven – especially mobile devices – Downloadable and easy to read ebooks – DRM free • GLOBAL students need global access with no IT barriers OA: • Helps meet demand without using budgets  • No problem with DRM for OA (?)  • More material to promote  • But - No supplier contract means no reference point for technical problems, so can limit readability 
  • An OaPEN book …  for Acquisitions Readable…
