Collection development is challenging for academic libraries due to the rising cost of e-resources. Over the past five years, the Case Western Reserve University Library has been experimenting with new ways to actively address these issues through specific strategic initiatives. We have been successful in reallocating one-time funds to user-driven purchasing initiatives, such as demand-driven and evidence based acquisitions models. Our usage data proves these models are cost-effective and aid in the research process by offering a wealth of content at the user’s point of need. This initiative has demonstrated that small changes can make a big impact and show value to our stakeholders.
- Help participants understand how to implement innovative purchasing models.
- Help participants understand how to assess DDA/EBA and how to make better strategic purchasing decisions.
- Help participants understand how to effectively communicate the value and impact of collection development and assessment.
