May 15, 2024 02:30 PM - 03:15 PM(America/Chicago)
20240515T1430 20240515T1515 America/Chicago Navigating the Troubled Waters of Collection Management with Alma Analytics Managing the collection to align with the needs of a library's target community is a basic tenet of library practice. Librarians typically manage their collections by assessing collection holdings for relevance, focusing on the most effective way to use their collection budget, and ensuring that collection needs are fulfilled. These practices often set up expectations for collection selection, lead to deselection of items within the collection, or may lead to long term retention of some items. Alma Analytics provides tools and reports that offer support for collection management practices. This presentation will review how Analytics can assist with activities such as journal swap analysis, e-resource assessment, and assessing collection gaps. The presenter will show how some of their own collection management projects as a collection strategist librarian have informed their use of analytics to gather data.
