11 The Challenge  How do we efficiently build the library collection, finding the right material and getting it shelf-ready in an acceptable time line?

12 Solution  Blackwell’s Collection Manager tool for identifying the right material  Bibliocentre for cataloguing and processing

13 Solution continued…  Bibliocentre is a major provider of monographic materials for all Ontario Colleges of Applied Art and Technology  Blackwell’s is a major supplier of academic literature supplying the college and university market with an enhance ability to identify curriculum content

14 Solution continued…  In the Fall of 2003 Guelph-Humber library services initiated and developed an e-Approval Pilot Project in collaboration with Blackwell’s Book Services and the Bibliocentre

15 Results  Extremely successful!  Streamlined the acquisition process for monographs  Full production – October, 2004

16 Results continued…  higher level of efficiency, especially during the peak ordering periods  Capitalizes on robust functionality of Collection Manager, Blackwell's powerful web-based collection development and acquisitions tool,  and Bibliocentre’s well-organized processes for cataloguing and item processing.

17 Workflow

18 Workflow 2  Create a subject profile with Blackwell  collection profiles for Guelph-Humber academic programs developed in close co-operation with GH faculty  Selectors receive eNotes electronic reports indicating new publications

19 Workflow 3  Selector is notified by e-mail with a link to the Collection Manager when a report about new items in a specific subject area becomes available in the system

20 Workflow 4  Selector has a choice… Order the entire eNotes report or Order the titles in the report selectively

21 Workflow 5  Selector completes requests directly in Collection Manager  Library Technician orders selector requests directly in Collection Manager  Orders are fulfilled by Blackwell’s  Blackwell’s sends order directly to Bibliocentre for cataloguing and processing (barcode, tattletape, label, etc)

22 Workflow 6  GH exports the order records from Blackwell’s Collection Manager to FTP site accessible by Bibliocentre staff and delivers a list of expected materials to Bibliocentre  Bibliocentre confirms and processes the material as it arrives but also… Handles payment and billing Handles claims Does the quality control
