    • A Consortial View of Academic Library Purchasing
      Kim Armstrong
      Assistant Director, CIC Center for Library Initiatives
    • CIC Member Institutions
      Headquartered in the Midwest, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) is a consortium of the Big Ten universities plus the University of Chicago
      University of Chicago
      University of Illinois
      Indiana University
      University of Iowa
      University of Michigan
      Michigan State University
      University of Minnesota
      Northwestern University
      Ohio State University
      Pennsylvania State University
      Purdue University
      University of Wisconsin-Madison
    • Funding Trends
      Majority of libraries had either flat budgets or experienced reductions
      Fewer exemptions for collections
      For collection budgets of $15-$20 million, that constitutes a loss of $350-$450,000
      Stimulus money helped, over by FY12
      Many publishers worked outside contracts to hold pricing to no increase
    • Coping
      Reductions in print – journals and monographs
      One time spending reduced (e.g. backfiles) with dollars carried forward
      Cut databases and reviewed lists of journals – cost per use is quite prevalent
      Low use material questioned e.g. foreign language and monographs
    • Acquisition Strategy
      Patron driven selection still too expensive for CIC schools
      Digitization partnerships yielding content (CIC Google contract)
      Large scale investment in cooperative purchases
      Interest in new pricing models, more tied to quality and usage
    • E-Books
      CIC has made a big investment in e-books
      Springer, Elsevier, Wiley, others
      Purchase model
      Multi-year agreements for everything purchased
      Cost at a fraction of print list price
    • Impact- Oxford Scholarship Online
      Electronic version
      2,765 titles currently purchased
      20,000 uses per year
      17 uses per title on average per year
      Print collection of same titles
      2,381 titles in collection
      .43 average circulations per title per year – 10 titles more than 50
      3.81 circulations over lifetime in collection
      Average title used 34 times more frequently online than circulated to a patron

    • Impact – Springer E-books
    • Going Forward
      Higher investment in central purchases
      Rational plan to migrate from print
      More content as inducement to keep existing level of spend
      Provide records, replace legacy print, develop archiving relationships, other services
