As the availability and use of digital articles and books increase, physical space within your library becomes a premium, budgets are squeezed and there is an ever increasing demand to justify value; whilst of course ensuring you meet student and faculty demand, you are obliged to consider what items should remain on your shelves. Let’s not forget this is while juggling the balance of expenditure on information resources and staffing.
So what are you to do?
It’s time to rethink.
How can you develop a closer understanding of the relationships between library activities on the one hand, and learning and research outcomes on the other?
How can you demonstrate and communicate the value of your services in achieving institutional goals?
How can you purchase and deliver resources efficiently and effectively, ensuring you meet demand?
How can you innovate and develop your service offering to meet the needs of users and support your institutional mission, whilst achieving significant cost savings?
How can you influence publishers’ policies on pricing and accessibility to improve take-up and reduce cost?
