    5. 5. Academic Library Collections
    6. 6. Collection Development Trends• Decreasing space• eBooks – DDA – POD• Shrinking budgets• Emphasis on Discovery• Disaggregation, unbundling• Greater collaboration
    7. 7. Decreasing Collections Space• Campus core too valuable – Less stack space• Full storage facilities• Decreasing storage options
    8. 8. Penrose Library1972 2012
    9. 9. A Potential Solution• eBooks/local POD helps with: – Space – Off-campus access – Searchability – Multi-user access – Satisfying different user needs (p vs e)
    10. 10. Slow Transition to eBooks• Lack of content• (Almost) no local POD options• Interface issues – Lack of ereader compatibility
    11. 11. For eBooks to Work, We Need• Compatibility – Device agnostic• Easy transfer• Reasonable DRM
    12. 12. Libraries are Doing it Wrong
    13. 13. Adobe Digital Editions
    14. 14. Too Many Steps!• Library Catalog• EBL – Open – Download• Adobe Digital Editions• Nook
    15. 15. No Space = No Browsing• Loss of serendipitous discovery• Major faculty concern
    16. 16. The Browsing Problem• Books in storage• One book – one call number• No option for eBooks• No option for books not in collection• No option for consortial partners• No option for books already checked out
    17. 17. The Browsing Solution• Digital browsing via catalog – Any format – Physical availability irrelevant – One book can have many locations• A mobile option? – QR code for physical location – Digital options nearby
    18. 18. Decreasing Budgets• Disproportionate impact on monographs – Fewer dollars = fewer books
    19. 19. Demand-Driven Acquisition• eBooks combined with POD (ideally) – eBooks combined with print (really)• Solves multiple problems – Space – Budget – Format
    20. 20. Definitions• Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA) – Faculty Requests/Input – Use Data• Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA) – Meets immediate need
    21. 21. Demand-Driven Acquisitions Goals• Broaden the collection – More titles – More publishers – More subjects• Match acquisitions to immediate demand – Pay at point of need – Pay for amount of need – Short-term loans – Purchase-on-demand
    22. 22. University of Denver EBL Data (5/1/10-6/30/11) Actual List325 titles purchased $23,753 $23,7533,599 titles with at least $49,171 $236,037one STL6,477 titles with at least $0 $473,378one browseTotal (10,401 titles) $72,924 $733,168Savings $660,244
    23. 23. Reconceiving Library Collections• Traditional Model – Building a collection – Library as steward of cultural record – Providing resources for current research/teaching• DDA – Allows a collection based on access – Primary goal: providing resources for current research/teaching
    24. 24. DDA | Discovery• Can’t buy it if you can’t find it• Can’t find it if it’s not where you look• Library discovery tools must work where users are
    25. 25. What We Know About Mobile• Surpassing desktop ownership/usage• Changing user expectations – Immediate access! • Download • Request• Changing user behavior – Purchase, download
    26. 26. Library Catalogs• Don’t take advantage of mobile: – No location information – Often no ability to request an item for delivery/to be held – No ability to check out with device – Limited by idea of traditional catalog/services
    27. 27. Libraries Need To• Respond to mobile technology: – Immediate access – Anywhere • Even for print
    28. 28. Disaggregation, Unbundling• Of collections – Fewer packages – End of the big deal?• Of content – Article vs. journal – Chapter vs. bookSmaller pieces forsmaller devices
    29. 29. Collaboration• In purchase – e or e/p• In storage• In drawing down print collections
    30. 30. Shared Collections• Shared e-access – Multiple business models for e (subscription, purchase, package, DDA)
    31. 31. Dispersed Collections• One print copy to share consortially• Shared storage• Reliance on partner libraries
    32. 32. Remote Collections, Remote Access
