10  New Courses  New Faculty  New/different course assignments Classroom Faculty Drive the Collection Over Time April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference10

11 Interlibrary Loan Versus Collection Development Per Item Interlibrary Loan  Guaranteed One Use  Guaranteed One Use Only Collection Development  Potential of Many Uses  Potential of Zero Uses April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference11

12 Ideal World versus Real World Ideal World  No interlibrary Loan  Library Collection meets all patron needs Real World  Both Interlibrary Loan and Collection Development are needed to meet patron needs April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference12

13  Maximize amount of materials obtained via collection development  Minimize interlibrary loan usage Optimal Situation April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference13

14  Primarily Databases  Necessary for patrons to find articles and books  No use of the collection or interlibrary loan without Discovery Tools Discovery Tools April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference14

15  Quick to add----increases access to scholarly materials  Slow to drop-----reduces access to scholarly materials Blueprint for Discovery Tools April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference15

16  Require judgment  Need to balance general database usage with subject database usage  Example----Low usage databases but usage is increasing  Classroom faculty input can be highly valuable Discovery Tools Also April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference16

17  Slow to add  Quick to drop  Journal articles are relatively easy to obtain via interlibrary loan  Titles only need to be carried for accreditation purposes Serial Purchases April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference17

18  Create a list of all serials in usage order  Combine interlibrary loan usage and your collection usage  Give interlibrary loan serial titles a multiplier  Use judgment along with accreditation requirements to determine which serials to cut and add  Review annually----could use rolling 3 years Blueprint for Serial Purchases April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference18

19 Journal uses keep Journal2 50 uses keep Journal3 25 uses (ILL) add Journal 4 1 use drop Journal 5 1 use (ILL) don’t add Journal 6 1 use drop Serial Blueprint Example April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference19

20  Books and Videos  As usage increases for each item cost per use declines  Add items to the collection with a probability of high volume usage  Interlibrary loan items with a low probability of repeat usage One Time Purchases April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference20

21  Group call numbers into logical usage levels annually (could use a rolling three years)  List your call number groups in usage order  Create two lists one for interlibrary loan and one for collection usage One Time Purchase Blueprint April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference21

22  H 1000 uses  F 100 uses  Z 2 uses Example---Your LC call number usage may look like this April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference22

23  HD 40 uses  HQ 10 uses  HV 0 uses Or it may look like this April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference23

24  HD uses  HD uses  HD uses Or it may look like this April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference24

25  If the interlibrary loan list is similar to the collection list, combine the two lists  If the interlibrary loan list is different then use both lists separately Using the Two lists April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference25

26  Purchase items that have call numbers that are high on either the interlibrary loan list or the collection list  Borrow items that are low on both lists  In the middle on both lists----judgment  Interlibrary Loan foreshadows the need to development your own library collection Using the Two Lists Separately April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference26

27  Low collection use----High interlibrary loan use  Your collection is weak in that group for your patrons  High collection use----high interlibrary loan use  Your collection is good in that group but can be improved  High collection use----low interlibrary loan use  Your collection is strong for your patrons  Low collection use----low interlibrary loan use  No need to develop your collection in that area What the separate lists tell you for any call number group April 10, 2014Eriksen Midwest Interlibrary Loan Conference27
