Thinking Outside The Box: Non-Traditional Takes on Assessment and Management of E-Resources

Thinking Outside The Box: Non-Traditional Takes on Assessment and Management of E-Resources

Whether through a serials review process or a detailed study, analyzing the value of e-resources at regular intervals is important to ensure their fit within your library’s collection and budget. While COUNTER statistics are vital for comparable analysis and reporting, there are other metrics and features that can be used to help assess, manage, and promote resources – giving more benefits to the end user.

We’ll look at how other metrics (i.e. impact factors, ILLs, turnaway statistics) and qualitative factors (i.e. perpetual access, open access, scholarly research support, recommendations, user feedback, classroom use, and curricula matching) offer actionable insights for librarians. This session will provide some perspectives and case examples, and a forum for discussing these issues.

The session will be presented by:
Scott Pope, Continuing Resources Librarian, Alkek Library, Texas State University
Whitney Bates-Gómez, Electronic Resources Librarian, Medical Library, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Steven Altieri, Director of Sales Americas, JoVE

In this session, you can expect to: 
— Review the scope of non-traditional assessment tools available today
— Learn from specific use cases how these non-traditional tools can be used
— Share how your institution assesses unique, non-traditional resources and get feedback from others
