Presentation Slides From NISO “Evolving Trends in Collection Development” Webinars

Slides from two recent NISO webinars.

March 6th: New Developments in Journal Article Access

Topics, Speakers, and Slides

  • Articles Just-in-Time: Libraries & Get It Now – Cyril Oberlander, Library Director, Milne Library, State University of New York at Geneseo
  • Get It Now: Supplement ILL with Always-On Fulfillment – Roy S. Kaufman, Copyright Clearance Center, Managing Director of New Ventures
  • DeepDyve: The “Rent to Own” Model for Accessing Scholarly Content – William (Bill) Park, CEO, DeepDyve 

Libraries and their users are gaining options for accessing articles without subscribing to the journals that contain them. Likewise, publishers are maximizing their content’s exposure by taking advantage of new forms of distribution. Novel access models include journal article rental through services such as DeepDyve, quick electronic delivery through the Copyright Clearance Center, and direct purchase from individual publishers. Join NISO for a webinar that will explore new developments in journal article access and these developments’ implications for libraries, end users, and publishers.

March 13th: Putting the User in the Driver’s Seat

Topics, Speaker, and Slides

Implementing a Demand Driven Acquisitions Pilot

  • Greg Doyle, Electronic Resources Program Manager, Orbis Cascade Alliance
  • Barbara Kawecki, Senior Digital Content Sales Manager, YBP
  • Cory Tucker, Interim Director, Logistics and Resources Distribution Services, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Demand-driven acquisition (DDA) is transforming collection development strategies for a growing number of academic libraries. By putting library users in the driver’s seat, DDA offers libraries a unique opportunity to better maximize budgets by shedding traditional “just in case” collection development to fine-tuned collections that meet actual user needs. But for many libraries, this model is also being driven by financial necessity, often creating a new set of challenges for libraries to define scope and selection threshold of potential collections.In this session, three representatives from the academic, consortia, and content provider communities share their insights, challenges and strategies for DDA collection development. If you’re thinking of a DDA program, or currently engaged in a DDA program, you won’t want to miss this informative session.
