Call for Proposals: Delivering Information vs. Collection Building

2014 Great Lakes E-Summit 
Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center 
Oregon, OH 
September 22-23, 2014 

We are asking for your proposals for the fourth annual Great Lakes E-Resources Summit. Our theme this year is delivering information vs. collection building and we are inviting proposals for fifty minute sessions that address the following topics.

  1. Just in Time Acquisitions - An in depth discussion of PDA, DDA, and other programs designed to deliver information to the user on demand rather than provide service using materials previously acquired by the library. We welcome proposals about your library’s PDA program, what has worked or what has not worked well, as well as more theoretical discussions of the costs and benefits of just in time information service for libraries. 

  2. Navigating the Marketplace for Electronic Resources – We welcome proposals regarding how your library controls or addresses costs for electronic resources. How have electronic resources changed the collection development policy or polices at your library? Is an allocation formula used for part or the library’s materials budget? How are freely available electronic resources included or not in your library’s collection/services? How does your library work with consortia to pursue discounts or find other ways to reduce the cost of electronic resources? 

  3. Analytics and Assessment of Electronic Resources – We welcome proposals regarding how your library uses data, including but not limited to usage statistics, to determine how to acquire electronic resources. How do you assess the value of your library’s electronic collection to the user? Who manages the assessment process of electronic resources in your library? We welcome proposals about specific tools, techniques, workflows, and organizational structures relevant to the data driven assessment of electronic resources. 
Please submit your proposal by clicking on the Submit a Proposal (2014) tab above.  

Deadline extended until May 21, 2014
Deadline for submissions is May 2, 2014. 

Contact us at GreatLakesSummit@gmail.com with questions.

Please share this information with all of your colleagues.

We look forward to reviewing your proposals.
