  • 10. Library Strategies
    • Collection Development
    • Comprehensive Instruction
    http://library.nsuok.edu/tutorials/index.html
  • 11. Example Collection Development Strategies
    • Identify curriculum relevant web content
      • Index by course on library web pages
    • Buy access to journal collections that are relevant to the curriculum
      • Use cancellations of duplication in print to fund purchases
        • 1 print title buys 31 e-journals
    • Purchase e-books in collections that are relevant to the curriculum
      • $3 for e-books versus $51 for print
      • At this point its value is primarily as a research collection rather than cover-to-cover reading
  • 12. Instruction Strategy
    • Association of College and Research Libraries
      • Comprehensive Instruction
      • Horizontally – i.e. all incoming students
      • Vertically– i.e. specific to departments & courses
    • Instruction using modules
