Librarian- Vendor relations and discussions can be complicated and troublesome or clear and collaborative or somewhere in between.  Establishing positive communications and relationships between publishers, vendors, institutions and individual librarians is crucial to the effective provisioning of information resources.  This session examines survey results investigating how libraries and vendors might manage communication expectations given the changing nature of scholarly communication. Electronic resources management increasingly widens its breadth and scholarly communication continually grows its depth. Libraries and vendors have complementary and sometimes competing goals which are worthy of discussion.

When people think of "big data," they consider text archives and user behavior and stop there.

Fundamentally, this data is just noise if it's not organized and understandable. As we consider sentiment, emotional content, and object recognition in video, a statement like “that’s a great idea” contains radically more complexity.

Research Metrics & the Evolving Role of the Library in Institutional and Faculty Assessment
Librarians have been redefining their role for the past 25 years. In today’s electronic world, librarians position themselves beyond traditional search experts: they focus their activities on data preservation and as experts for the institutional repository, as well as advisors on Open Access Policy for the university. Their expertise and understanding of complex metrics can now serve a new audience: research administration and research program strategy. In the session, we would like to  review these analytical use cases through the InCites™ platform, as well as hopefully hear from librarians on their role in the use of research performance metrics for the university.

Dispelling Myths around Demand Driven Acquisition: Evaluating Shifting Library Budgets and Best Practices for Leveraging Diverse Acquisition Models

No library has an unlimited budget. No one acquisition model fits all libraries. Some recent reports decry ebook acquisitions models like DDA and STL without incorporating correlations between budget trends, collection policies and buying habits or offering concrete solutions.

In truth, navigating ebook collection development in the changing library landscape requires an understanding of the reasons why library budgets are shifting, how collections policies are changing (including the relationship between P&E), and the diverse acquisition models that are available.

During this session we will dispel the current myths around DDA by sharing results from our recent Academic Library Book Purchasing Trends survey and offering best practices for building your larger acquisition strategy—one that includes Print and Electronic books and diverse acquisition models.

  • Explore trends and the reasons behind shifting budgets
  • Expose and discuss common disconnections between collection policies and buying habits
  • Take away best practices for managing collection development by integrating multiple acquisition models into your print and electronic book acquisition program

S65 - True Impact: How to Measure and Drive Deeper User Engagement?
User Engagement is a matter of common parlance in today’s business world. Few managers or investors will assess the performance of a business on how many users or hits it has alone; equally, if not more, important is how “engaged” those users are. Metrics such as “active users” have replaced “unique visitors”, in order to provide a perspective not only of the volume of people benefiting from a resource, but also the scale of impact it is having on them.  Steve Jobs once said, “I would rather a business with 100 impassioned users than 100,000 indifferent ones”.
 
Libraries are catching onto this thinking too. Historically, libraries have had limited tools to monitor or interpret user engagement and this has underpinned the way in which resource development has developed. The traditional approach was the “volume strategy” where, in the absence of insight into our users and with a consequentially hindered pulse on demand, our objective was to provide as many resources as possible at the lowest cost. This has often been dubbed the “just in case” method, where key metrics were volume and cost (e.g. cost per item).
 
Today, we find ourselves firmly in a time of “ROI Assessment” where, with improvements analytics tools, we can now introduce a perspective of “value” into resource assessment. This heighted focus not just on use, not just volume, has spurred new roles in resource assessment and new models such as “patron driven acquisition” where the idea is to provide a greater breadth of resource whilst more closely aligning our budgets to users’ requirements. This has often been dubbed the “just in time” method, where key metrics are cost per use/user, etc.
 
But what of the future? The reality is that we currently have no perspective on the true impact of our resources. The “R” in our current “ROI” metrics will only tell us if someone accessed or used a resource – it does not tell us how they used it, why they used it, and what impact it had on them. We foresee a new era of “Impact Value Assessment” emerging that will, as in business, provide libraries with a more accurate way to gauge the true impact or “value” to our end users.
 
Our libraries collaborated this last year with Kanopy, the video streaming platform, on a project that dove into and explored patron usage behavior (via behavioral tracking tools, events-based-analysis, user surveys, etc) with three objectives in mind:
(1) to better understand not just what our users were using, but why and how they were using it;
(2) to design and build metrics that captured a perspective of end user impact and would complement our ROI analyses; and
(3) to develop tangible approaches for how we could incorporate this information into our acquisition, assessment and promotional activities.
 
We believe that developing reliable engagement ROI metrics will further transform our approach to resources in the digital age, and bring libraries up to speed with industry best practices.
