1 E-preferred Profiled Standing Orders (PSO’s) QUT Library Trial (June-December 2013) Brendan Sinnamon V723, Level 7, V Block, Gardens Point Campus

2 Science/IT/Maths/Engineering (SEF): 6 profiles Business (BUS): 5 profiles Profiles established with James Bennett Based on existing print profiles $ made available QUT Library has patron-driven acquisition (PDA) of ebooks via EBL E-preferred PSO’s Trial (1 June 2013 – 24 December 2013)

3 $ on print PSO’s for SEF $ on print PSO’s for BUS TOTAL: $ on print PSO’s for SEF and BUS Approximately 840 items (assumption $100 average book price) SEF + BUS PSO’s (1 June to end October 2012) Print only PSO’s

4 Proviso: Reactivation of SEF + BUS PSO’s occurred late July 2013 with back ordering from 1 June 2013 but de-duplicated against existing firm orders $ (print PSO’s for SEF): 79 items ordered $ (print PSO’s for BUS): 61 items ordered – Total: $ : 140 print items ordered $ (ebook PSO’s for SEF): 16 items ordered $ (ebook PSO’s for BUS): 20 items ordered – Total: $ : 36 ebook items ordered TOTAL: $ : 176 items SEF + BUS PSO’s (1 June to end October 2013) e-Preferred PSO’s

5 SEF PSO’s: Expenditure reduction 68% BUS PSO’s: Expenditure reduction 82% Overall expenditure reduction SEF + BUS when moved to e-preferred PSO’s: 76% Item reduction SEF + BUS when moved to e- preferred PSO’s: approx. 80% Expenditure and Item Reduction 2013 (e-Preferred PSO’s for SEF + BUS) vs 2012 (Print PSO’s for SEF + BUS)

6 Assumes simultaneous patron-driven acquisition (PDA) (e.g., EBL, Ebrary) in operation $1.4 million book allocation Firm orders $ Remaining $1.2 million: 76% reduction leads to saving of $ * – *based on results of SEF + BUS e-preferred PSO’s trial Demonstration of potential savings of e- preferred PSO’s: (QUT Library)

7 Observed large expenditure reduction due to non ebook/print purchase as ebook availability via EBL PDA (within 8 weeks publication of print) – James Bennett indicate approx. 60% of profiled items for BUS and approx. 80% profiled items for SEF available via EBL PDA More money potentially available for additional subscriptions/purchase of one-off online products/journal backfiles/online video Outcomes of e-preferred PSO’s Trial (1 June - end October 2013)

8 Run e-preferred PSO’s across all profiles (not just SEF + BUS) Examine expenditure reduction Next steps…2014

9 Less librarian time spent firm ordering – Some initial time investment required setting up PSO’s and adjusting as needed More time for embedding of academic literacies and teaching/learning support as well supporting our research staff/students PSO’s (Positive impacts for the liaison librarian)

10 Over time less de-selection required Over time less physical shelving required More money available for subscriptions/purchase of one-off online products/journal backfiles/online video* *Assumes simultaneous patron-driven acquisition (PDA) (e.g., EBL, Ebrary) in operation Improved access to books for clients due to well- known benefits of ebooks over print books – QUT preference for ebook over print E-preferred PSO’s vs print PSO’s (Positive impacts for the liaison librarian)

11 Time delays for access to titles – All potential print title allocations placed in a ‘hold bucket’ until 8 weeks after publication – But at QUT Library they are shelf-ready so minimal arrival delays Therefore e-preferred PSO’s may not be so suitable for some subjects areas where publishing more in print format so titles delayed arriving to library – No issues identified with delayed arrival of 140 print items as part of trial Disadvantages of e-preferred PSO’s vs print PSO’s (Negative impacts for the liaison librarian)

12 Questions/Discussion
