Adding PDA for Print? Consider Your Options for Implementation

  1. 1. ADDING PDA FOR PRINT? Consider Your Options for Implementation Teri Koch – Head, Collection Development, Drake University Andrew Welch – Librarian for Discovery Services & Technology, Drake University Lisa McDonald – Account Manager, Ingram-Coutts
  2. 2. AGENDA 1. SET UP QUESTIONS & DECISIONS 2. DRAKE UNIVERSITY BACKGROUND 3. 4. IMPLEMENTATION – PILOT DEVELOPMENT (OVERVIEW) IMPLEMENTATION – TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS 5. PROJECT EXPERIENCE/RESULTS 6. PROJECT METRICS 7. FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS
  3. 3. SET UP QUESTIONS AND DECISIONS Why Print PDA?  Which areas should be moved to PDA?  How long does it take to receive a book? Will it take ―too long?‖ How can we set reasonable expectations?  What will it look like in our OPAC?  Will this add work for our patrons and library staff? 
  4. 4. SET UP QUESTIONS AND DECISIONS  Real time stock check Program for this = good idea of timing  Leave out = use a placeholder for timing   Form for patron Ask lots of questions for follow up  Keep it simple or even leave out   Mediated or Unmediated Requests directed to acquisitions  Or go straight to vendor 
  5. 5. DRAKE UNIVERSITY – DES MOINES, IOWA Largest private academic library in Iowa  Around 5,000 FTE students  Colleges/Schools: --Arts & Sciences --Business (MBA, MPA) --Education (EdD) --Journalism --Law (JD) --Pharmacy (PharmD) 
  6. 6. COWLES LIBRARY 12 Librarians; 10 Staff  Librarians have faculty rank & status  400,000 book volumes  2,378 PDA print books  19,000 subscribed to or owned electronic books  173,000 PDA e-books  Current acquisitions budget=$1,498,000 
  7. 7. DRAKE UNIVERSITY PDA BACKGROUND History of e-book PDA with EBL—since 2009  Program has been successful 
  8. 8. WHY EXPAND ELECTRONIC PDA TO INCLUDE PRINT?  Some same reasons as for ebook PDA: Greater depth, breadth of titles available for patrons  More effective use of financial resources  Buy what patrons need when they need it  Some titles not available in electronic format, or not available for a long time.  Some titles are exorbitantly expensive in an eformat (which our price limiters would exclude), but are more reasonably priced in print  We wanted to include these materials in our PDA offerings. 
  9. 9. PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION Pilot Development, Budgeting, Vendor Selection, Profile Development
  10. 10. PILOT DEVELOPMENT Four professional programs  Business, Journalism, Pharmacy, Education  Strong Liaison support  Budget reallocation from dedicated monograph line to PDA  Pilot began in April 2012 with soft roll-out  Pilot ran through August 2013 
  11. 11. VENDOR SELECTION: CONSIDERATIONS Ability to integrate formats without duplication  Technical considerations  Real-time stock availability 
  12. 12. PROFILE DEVELOPMENT Librarian & teaching faculty roles  Selection of format  Delay in electronic publication  Costs  How far back to go (we did current and previous year) 

  25. 25. PROJECT METRICS & FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS
  26. 26. PILOT PROJECT: SUCCESS, FAILURE, OR MIXTURE? Success: Library & Teaching Faculty choose parameters for PDA inclusion; librarians still have role in Collection Development  Success: Wider variety of books made available to patrons at point of need  Success: Didn’t spend money on unused materials. More efficient use of acquisitions $  Mixed bag/Failure: Not enough titles available in the catalog for patrons to discover 
  27. 27. POST PILOT: FISH OR CUT BAIT?
  28. 28. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? We’ve just expanded the subjects covered to include ALL subjects taught at Drake  We used existing ―slip‖ profiles with another vendor as a starting point  We also refined the existing ―pilot profiles‖ to open them up. Conclusion: we “over-engineered” the profiling process initially.  Makes sense to let patrons decide on the ―slip‖ titles since there was something about them that was not a ―dead ringer‖ for purchase 
  29. 29. FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS EBL records. When/how will they ―play nice‖ with Ingram Coutts PDA records? TBD: Potential ―filtering‖ of EBL records through the profiles in 2014  Overall Collection Development approach.  Do librarians still develop a print collection in a ―just-in-time‖ PDA world?  We would like to still develop a librarian & faculty selected CORE print monograph collection. What does that look like? How much is budgeted for PDA vs. non-PDA monographs?  Weeding of PDA records. What is the magic number for TOO MANY? 
