Lunch & Learn with Ex Libris: Weeding e-Resources
Please Click to Register
While the weeding of physical materials in libraries has become a well-worn workflow, weeding e-resources is much newer and can seem confusing. This session will demonstrate how to incorporate usage, overlap analysis, and duplicate title analysis to make sure you’re keeping what you need and not what you don’t. E-resource specialists will present new electronic resources reporting workflows that combines usage data, an overlap analysis of e-resources owned between different vendor packages, and a duplicate title analysis of e-resources owned all within a single system. This session will review each of these reporting features and their data output to help us understand our e-resource collections, where we are allocating funds, and what savings can be generated for the library.
