Review in Motion: Multi-Year Electronic Resources Review at UTA Libraries

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

With a flat budget and ever increasing inflation for serials, UTA Libraries chose to embark on a multi-year electronic resources review process. Targeting low hanging fruits, the first step was to review subscription journals included in aggregator databases. This initial review process was also a relatively straightforward step to help new liaisons in a newly created Outreach & Scholarship department to get their “feet wet” with collection development. As liaisons become more acclimated, the second step in the following year is to review all subscription journals. Online only subscriptions are distributed amongst all liaisons, while Print + Online subscriptions are handled by more seasoned liaisons. Guidelines and metrics are created to facilitate the review in addition to liaisons’ empirical knowledge through their engagement with users. The third step is to review all databases and sustain a regular database review interval going forward. In the presentation, we will share with you our findings, guidelines, and metrics of the process.
