When LBJ was president and the Beatles were all the rage, Southwest Texas State College adopted a library allocation formula. Five decades later, the Texas State University Libraries administration decided it was time to stop adjusting the formula and adopt a completely new collection budget model with more flexibility to meet changing needs.

In this session, we will discuss the three-year process we used to develop a new collection budget model, share our communication strategies with the campus, and discuss how the new model is impacting serials workflow from renewing journals to providing assessment data. Finally, we’ll ask attendees to suggest data we should collect to help us update the model as the marketplace and the university change.
