Notes

Abstract: Have you found your journal collection gathering dust? Or are your online journals suffering from lack of use? Creating a customized serials list may revive an otherwise underused collection. This presentation presents a method, in development, for creating a customizable core journal list for specialized or small academic library collections. Developing a local ranking system based on qualitative and quantitative evidence can be useful for libraries serving a newly-created program or evaluating an established one. During this session, we will explore some philosophy and best practices, and discuss how you can apply those to your own collection. The speakers will demonstrate how to rank and weight local needs alongside external measures like standard lists and peer comparisons. The method, which has been used to evaluate a niche academic branch collection, is ideally suited to solo librarians or those who have little time and few resources. Attendees will be able to use this method to make logical collection development decisions through diligent applications of gathered evidence and communicate the reasoning behind those decisions to stakeholders.
