Notes

Abstract: This project assessed the performance of two of the print suppliers for the University of North Texas Libraries: a major library book vendor and a large online retailer. The two measures used to gauge performance were (1) turn-around time to fulfill orders and (2) discount off list price as found on the library book vendor's website. During the data collection period, we ordered the least expensive print book that was in stock at either of the vendors included in the assessment and recorded the ordering information. Following the data collection period, we analyzed the results and made a final recommendation for the ordering unit's preference regarding print suppliers. The goal of this session is to provide a model for other libraries to assess the performance of their print vendors.
