The reunification of 10 faculty libraries inside the new Rolex Learning Center at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) was a perfect opportunity to rethink which collections should be put forward in an environment that is organized primarily around the working and living space of users. Meanwhile, "Collection development" has shifted from a simple selection and subsequent acquisition of content to a selection of the best way to offer access to relevant content. Electronic books allow on-demand access in an even more cost and resource-efficient way. We will discuss how the EPFL Library is implementing its e-books collection to allow for on-demand access and how to provide total transparency for the users.

  • Notre école a grandi : 2000  7000 étudiants Positionnement international / Recherche de pointe Nouveaux objectifs : « faire des étudiants les entrepreneurs de leur savoir » Des « focus groups » ont identifié les attentes des habitants de l’Ecole Résidences étudiantes et accueil des hôtes académiques Centre international de congrès Un campus vivant 24h/24 Dont la bibliothèque doit devenir le coeur
  • On a mis en avant les livres les plus lus (course reserve, récents, livres d’archi, grand public), les archives sont ouvertes au sous-sol Membres du réseau NEBIS, 3mio d’ouvrages + ILL + scan des articles -> accès est plus important que acquisition
  • On a du décider comment répartir Choix de dates butoir Recoter les ouvrages récents -> on se pose la question sur ces ouvrages Puis maintenant, gestion dynamique, on descend et on remonte
  • Pour les monographies, je ne vous apprends rien, on est passé de sélection contenu -> sélection de l’accès (ILL, ebook rental, buy, etc.) Patron-driven acq Infoscience??
  • OU just in case / piling up à just in time / delivery Il est évident que pour que ce modèle fonctionne, il faut pouvoir obtenir rapidement tous les documents (selon délai acceptable, la bib décide en fonction du type de doc) et de manière transparente pour le lecteur. Dans le meilleur des cas, il ne doit même pas se rendre compte de la provenance exacte du document, pourvu que les délais soient respectés. Infoscience??
  • Exemple: U of T Mais c’est encore plus simple avec les ebooks, c’est ce qu’on fait à l’EPFL En parallèle aux achats papier (complémentaire avec le réseau, on va vers un patron-driven pour le papier aussi), on développe notre collection électronique avec une core collection (SpringerLink, M&C, etc.) + ebooks on demand via DawsonEra. Raisons de la core collection: moins cher à condition de bien choisir (év. exemple collection de maths SpringerLink: 80 € par titre utilisé au moins 1 fois les 6 premiers mois…)
  • A propos du plugin, je voudrais finir là-dessus, c’est mon pet-project Don’t try to drag the users to your OPAC, bring them the OPAC where they are (without them knowing it’s your OPAC…)
  • On le fait tous déjà avec SFX dans WoS ou Google Scholar p ex
  • Mais on peut aller plus loin. Le plugin a commencé pour les acquéreurs, on s’est rendu compte que les usagers commencaient à l’utiliser également et aimaient bien, notamment car ils font des recherches documentaires sur Amazon -> épiphanie TG Ceci est un mock-up, mais la fonctionnalité est déjà là!
