  • Typical factoids above – what they mean is that IC is a different beast in terms of its collections to many of your collections. Simpler – dont have legacy collections, dont do unique, dont have broad breadth of subjects, we have dosh,Resources are seen as a college utility D7sconul return – ejs – not including the ejs with databases e.gjstor – 200kEbks – ebl - textbk – reference sections, We do have researchers, students, alumni, nhs
  • In the fluffy paper – series of qs & a flavour of the issues we’re digesting.Schematic of the quandaries - mapped our services/activities to institutional mission/library strat plan. Qs within context of institution.Premise – e-collection rather than print world - stuff – access, links, connections - (eddiestobart of distribution). Cengage – negogiate content drm – package together. Deepdyve – rent article The remaining 2 are – being efficient & cost effective, contributing to the sector
  • Open era – data, access, educational resource, sharing is good equipment sharing schemeHow do we shape our collections – consequences short & long term.Data we know that PDA requested titles are used more than mediated purchase.PDA – library purchases the core text/reading list material – leaves us £250k which divvy up liaision librarians - they have autonomy how spent -% will be user requests , % they chose – using the strategies – new research grps/courses, demand usage, reservations (data available scattered) . The cost is north of £250k material – not factoring the attendant costs e.g selection, processing, housingHow do you measure value – what is value? How evaluate – against what – strat plan
  • Book collections – how they’re used. Snapshot of set of type & subjects – usage year of purchase, +1, +2. Can see 45% items purchased not borrowed – usual caveats – crude sum equated north of £125k.Stop purchasing – give that monies to PDA /depts – free up liaisions for other wrk . What is the best way to spend that money? These not £250k material – value of - not factoring the attendant costs e.g selection, processing, housing. Drill down I don’t know but I doubt whether anything unique in those titles -
  • What shall we be purchasing in future – not discrete titles – what are the info nuggetsWhat is the space we’ll be operating ? Concept of personal cloud - level of granularity – collection cloud distributedImportant delivery & distribution mechanism Tenopir/JISC scholarly reading study showed that article reading Interesting – might not come to library for bks – not convenient sourceSchiolarly chain flexing
  • Learning technologists are at departmental level- they’re not formally with central dept – ICT or library.Impetus – connections in the other ERS TL departments povidingiPADsCase study is the business school - consequences resoutcesiPAD ready. Developed info hub – vleEng depts - The central model to be investigated is the provision of a copy of core textbooks for download via the VLE and onto mobile devices for each 1st year undergraduate student in the Faculty of Engineering.APCS – again what is the mechanism so that instit. are not paying for the content twice – APCs & subs.printing options, annotation, ability to share notes between lecturers and students, and the
