1 Consortial Use of E-Resources in Academic Libraries in Austria Libraries and Users 7th Seminar 2007 Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing Zagreb, March Helmut Hartmann Austrian Consortia Cooperation

2 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 2 Agenda Introduction: Tackling the problem Purpose of building consortia Characteristics of successful consortia Integration issues in budget saving, collection development and administration Statistical Proof Outlook: The National Backfiles Project

3 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 3 Tackling the problem (radically) Libraries struggling under - Budget constraints - Increasing expenses - Inflation of resources - Users demands for more

4 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 4 Tackling the problem (reasonably) Building Consortia!

5 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 5 Purpose of building consortia Building a community of libraries entering into a cooperative agreement to share information or provide services that benefit students and staff Pooling their individual fiscal, human, and material resources to take advantage of more favourable agreements with publishers, or arrange to share staff technical expertise Making up for local cancellations by Cross Access Agreements

6 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 6 Characteristics of successful consortia (Hirshon, A.: International Library Consortia: How Did We Get Here? Where are We Going?) Valuable programs and services Clear sponsorship and ownership Committed membership Strong leadership Effective committees Continuous communication Sustainable organization Adequate staffing (Usually not only volunteers) Agile organizations

7 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 7 Budget Saving through Integrated Collection Development Small libraries can share journals they could never afford Multi-year agreements offer substantial capping of annual increase Comparatively low or no additional charge at all for Cross Access or UTL Access Enclosure of new journals into existing packages for free one year trials Consortia deals still save a lot of money: Graz University Library 2004 savings at Springer: (Cross Access compared to Single Site Subscriptions)

8 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 8 Assets for Integration Collection development Consistency of holdings can no longer be granted due to budget constraints Swiftly changing relevance of holdings because of: New subject fields Establishing new departments Temporary research projects New journals Splitting of journals Just-in-time supply instead of Just-in-case Consortia (particularly if they go e-only) help libraries to react dynamically to their users demands as (even in packages) titles can usually be substituted by others

9 Libraries and Users Zagreb March 2007 Hartmann, Use of E-resources in Academic Libraries in Austria 9 Assets for Integration Administration Simplifying orders: One order for hundreds of titles Joint cataloguing For e-only-titles (local ones as well as CA or UTL ones) no issue admin no claims no binding no shelving Controlling made easy: Hundreds of journals bundled in one file of stats
