Transcript

  • 1. Keeping the Best in Challenging Economic Times Greg Raschke and Annette Day, North Carolina State University ALA Annual Conference July 12, 2009
  • 2. Day in the Life – Collections Review 1995  Consider price, impact factor, and editors  Print use or citation studies – if they have been done recently  User community feedback via lists  Static and temporary  Apply domain expertise and institutional knowledge  Transparency and accountability  Move money from book funds  Ask/Pray/Meditate for more money next year
  • 3. Day in the Life – Collections Review 2000  Consider price, impact factor, and editors  Print use and citation studies(?) – if available  Introduce web logs if you can get them in a workable state  User community feedback via lists (online this time)  Static, but electronic and more available  Apply domain expertise and institutional knowledge  Move money from book funds  Ask/Pray/Meditate for more money next year
  • 4. Day in the Life – Serials Review 2004  Web logs and e-usage data (not enough)  Publication data and citation patterns (if you can get them)  Impact factor  Weigh price against usage  User community feedback via lists (online forms this time)  Maintain big deals and access gained over past decade  Apply domain expertise and institutional knowledge  Move money from book funds  Ask/Pray/Meditate for more money next year
  • 5. Day in the Life – Collections Review 2009 – General Assumptions  Truly embrace evidence based decision making  Resource management based increasingly on use  Less tolerance for and less investment in lower use general collections  Use based and user driven collecting models will take growing share of budget  Local collection has become more a part of growing discovery and access at network level
  • 6. Day in the Life – Collections Review 2009 – Presenting and Packaging Data  User community feedback via interactive, database-driven applications  Weigh/calculate/quantify user feedback  Community Feedback ((Weighted Ranking x % Match) x Total # Rankings) + 0.1 x # of "1s“
  • 7. Day in the Life – Collections Review 2009 – Presenting and Packaging Data  Bibliometrics - publication data and citation patterns (e.g LJUR)  Impact factor and eigenfactor  Standardized usage data (where available)  Quadrangulation of data  Weigh price against multiple data points  Usage ((07usage+08usage/5)+(publications*10)+ (citations*5)+ (Eigenfactor*10)  Price/feedback value  Price/data value  Merge results to filter titles into 5 tiers
  • 8. Day in the Life – Collections Review 2009  Network effect emphasizing content  Packages and agreements  Allocation assessment via multi-disciplinary lens  Weigh investments against institutional data in a consistent, technology enabled way – identify stagnation
  • 9. Assessing via Institutional Lens
  • 10. Assessing via Institutional Lens
  • 11. Day in the Life – Collections Review 2009  Apply domain expertise and institutional knowledge  Revisit large agreements in context of large-scale cuts  Maintain access gained over past decade  Truly innovate, collaborate, and look at new models – particularly for books and databases  Get right content, highest ratio of use and service per dollar  Still Ask/Pray/Meditate for more money next year
  • 12. Issues and Cautions  Not enough data - still lack much of the comprehensive data we need – must improve quickly  Data can punish niche areas, disciplinary variation, and titles without data  Tools and views to consistently monitor performance  Monitoring usage trends and patterns and responding accordingly – active, consistent review and reporting  Changing budget targets  Granular command of orders to packages to titles (ERM’s are not close to there)
