Notes

Abstract: There will be a time when your library will need to evaluate all of your electronic resources. How would you do it? In response to a cut to our materials budget, we have developed a method that condenses a large amount of information into a few select criteria. In this day-long workshop, we will walk through the process using the Decision Grid process developed by the University of Maryland at College Park (Foudy and McManus 533-538) as a starting point. The workshop leaders will first demonstrate each step of our process, and then the participants will work in small groups (5-7) using their own experiences and a sample data set of their own. The steps covered will include selecting and defining the criteria, gathering and analyzing the data, and determining how to make final decisions. We will cover some technical aspects of gathering and analyzing data, including using Excel functions. We will also include discussions about the criteria and ways of eliciting honest and useful feedback from librarians and patrons. The participants will receive a flash drive with Excel templates that include formulas, as well as completed sheets with sample data, and the presentation files.
