Collection Management Forum: Alternatives to the Big Deal: Implementing Pay Per View Collection Management Forum/Update Dallas Convention Center
D168
Description :

Large aggregated packages of journals that publishers offer to libraries for hefty subscription fees, otherwise known as the Big Deal, have become commonplace in libraries. While they offer the advantage of purchasing large numbers of titles at a discount, librarians have become increasingly disenchanted with them because of their high cost and the inability to add or drop titles from the package. Pay per view subscription models offer an alternative that allows librarians to pay only for those articles that their users view. This program examines the pay per view model from the perspective of both the publisher and of librarians who have implemented it. The advantages and disadvantages of per view are discussed along with an exploration of where the pay per view model is headed and what its long term prospects might be.

Technical Services Workflow Efficiency Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center

Description :

With constant budget cuts libraries are focusing on digitizing their unique and special collections. More metadata is now being created in house by staff that formerly only did traditional cataloging. The panelists will discuss their approaches to transitioning staff away from traditional cataloging and towards metadata. Learn from this panel how libraries have trained traditional cataloging staff to create metadata for their digital collections as part of their normal cataloging workflows and any obstacles or lessons learned during the transition to this new type of cataloging. The digital collections discussed will include institutional repositories, oral histories, museum collections and archival collections of all shapes and sizes.
