The Unknown Path—Evaluating Electronic Resources for Access-Based Collection Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2015, the University of North Texas Libraries implemented an access-based collection development policy. This new policy, coupled with the increase of interdisciplinary studies at the University, dictated the necessity for a more exhaustive evaluation of continuing resources such as databases, journals, and standing orders before they are purchased. The Collection Development department created a rubric of criteria to address all aspects of the evaluation. This session will provide a brief description of access-based collection development and a detailed discussion of the rubric’s criteria and how it will be implemented. The session will close with an opportunity for the audience to provide additional criteria for evaluation.
