Abstract

To support its users, libraries are increasingly allocating more of their funds to electronic and digital collections. Along with the challenges of acquiring and maintaining these resources are the challenges of assessment to determine relevance of a resource for a university’s users and its programs.
In an effort to make the library’s purchases of its resources and online learning tools more relevant to users; a process was developed for review and assessment that involved communication and collaboration with academic departments at the institution.
In this session the presenter will share information on the methods developed to share documentation with departments and programs for review and assessment of library resources by subject area; allowing for a more complete analysis of the collection’s strengths and weaknesses, and providing faculty and user involvement in the decision making process of what to acquire or cancel.
