      Evaluating, Enhancing and Supplementing the Library Resources
    • Managing our collection faces a crisis... *reduction in expenditures due to price increases *diminished resources *aging of the collection *digital formats are not less expensive *resource-sharing may not solve the the problem
            • review present status of collection
            • assess strengths and weaknesses
            • identify unmet and emerging needs
            • list priorities for acquisition
      Know what the library needs
      • Developing core collections rather than comprehensive holdings is a priority.
      • Care should taken in updating.
      • Emphasis is on intellectual content , rather than the traditional format

      • Information should be collected in the most appropriate format. Usefulness, not format, is the deciding factor in acquisition.
      • Disseminate information on new materials for selection to clientele before acquisition
      • match funds with needs

      Enhancing your library resources
      • Electronic access is now the reality. More capital funds are being rechannelled to buy computer equipment, licenses and access fees to Internet. The World Wide Web presents a vast store of information, but care must be taken to determine those that are inaccurate and unverifiable.
      Enhancing with Internet access
      • Identification/selection of materials thru review sites and websites of vendors, publishers, traditional booksellers, libraries, academic institutions, etc.

      • Indexing archived documents
      Developing Online Collections
      • multimedia (interactive videos) and cd-rom technology are becoming more and more attractive than prints, because they present a better alternative to reading and information retrieval.
      Acquiring multimedia materials
    • Resource-sharing, collaborative purchasing, and cooperative collection present alternatives to enhance collections, reduce not only acquisition costs. Enhancing with shared collections...
    • Resource-sharing
      • the goal of many consortia
      • by knowing their strengths/weaknesses, they could take advantage of the strengths and work together to cover the weaknesses.
    • Benefits from Shared Collections
      • Enhance library resources and services
      • Expand the breadth
      • and depth of collections
      • Reduce unnecessary
      • duplication
      • Reduce costs and space requirements
      • Maximize their use
    • Acquiring gifts and donations
      • Manuscript collections and rare books

      • Personal/family papers
      • Periodical/serial titles of general interest
      • Reference material of timeless value
      • Thank you!
