This one-hour session addresses the increasing demand of scholars and researchers for access to the underlying data that supports the conclusions in published materials. In response, publishers provide datasets either as stand-alone products or attached to publications. Many questions about how the information community will deal with these resources are unanswered. Traditional bibliographic, discovery, citation, and preservation tools are not well-equipped to address these new content types. An ALCTS webcast
This hour-long session gives an overview of key concepts behind demand-driven acquisition, why and how to implement, and benefits to the library and the campus community. Will also give an understanding of the implications for the library collection. An ALCTS webinar--one of two parts.

The first webcast in a series on standards in the library environment addressing why standards are important to libraries in areas other than the traditional technical services areas.
The digital revolution has resulted in an important, and sometimes daunting, change in the way libraries and other organizations procure, access and store information available for internal use and for use by researchers. Before the advent of electronic resources, libraries regularly purchased and owned print copies of materials for their collections. We are now witnessing a revolution in how information is acquired, stored and accessed. Librarians have become negotiators and interpreters of legal agreements.

Libraries and archives are often asked by the communities they serve to conduct, advise on, or be the institutional home for oral history projects. The librarian or archivist is relied upon to help define an oral history project, provide background research, assemble technical resources, develop a list of interview questions, identify potential interviewees, train interviewers, create products, and house the resulting interviews. This webinar will give participants the foundation for successful oral history projects.

This webinar covers key points to consider, tools, and workflow options in managing electronic resources. Most libraries use multiple tools and approaches to manage e-resources, which brings benefits and challenges. Speakers will provide insights and perspectives on ERM systems, supplemental processes to fill gaps in functionality, and those systems' interoperability with patron-facing interfaces.
