Libraries face opposing pressures of reduced budgets, patron demand for new content, and increasing costs. This webinar presents a method to collect and analyze cost and use data to evaluate your journal collection (including how to analyze that Big Deal). The presenters will discuss a variety of alternatives to subscriptions to enable patron access to needed content. Presenters will also discuss how to effectively communicate journal access changes with faculty. An ALCTS webcast

Oral histories can provide a wealth of information about individual and community life. These recordings are highly prized by historians and archivists, but also by the families and communities of the persons telling their stories. The risk of losing these voices is growing, as the cassettes or reels that they're recorded on may no longer be playable, or may be deteriorating. However, the rewards for making efforts now to save these items for new generations are great.
