2010 Academic Library Buying Patterns
Academic Library Buying Patterns: Shifting Budgets and More eResources
This panel will explore how academic libraries are reacting to budget cuts in terms of collection development. Three librarians representing libraries of different sizes and orientations and the CIC and UALC consortia will address these issues and more and respond to your questions. Are cancellations of journals or databases planned? What are the criteria? Are approval plans being suspended? Does this make Patron Driven Selection of books more attractive? How do ebooks fit into the budget? Is there increased uptake of consortium support, or is consortium support being reduced?
