With ever tightening budgets libraries are looking at how they can maintain their print collections by getting the best value, buying books that their users want, stimulating usage and looking for new ways the library can help in providing teaching materials. This workshop discusses three areas where cooperation between publishers and libraries can work to the benefit of both and has presentations from both parties.
  1. Evidence Based Acquisition (EBA) has become a popular new tool for libraries but how does it work in practice and what are the pitfalls. Librarians and publishers will detail programs they have worked on (including EBA for print books), what the issues were and how they were overcome.
  2. Textbooks have historically not been an area that libraries have embraced but with price pressure and technical developments how can a library be used as a source of course textbooks without destroying the publishers business model.
  3. Many libraries acquire large collections of e-books. Both libraries and publishers have an interest in getting the widest use of these collections, but what practical steps can we take to make sure the collections and updates can easily be included in a library’s system? How we can help the e-books get to the users who need them?
Everyone who attend this workshop, either librarian or publisher, should leave the session with practical ideas about how they can use what they have heard. Participants will leave with relevant handouts and will have the opportunity to be profiled in the Library Technology Innovation series.
