ASERL Friends: I am pleased to announce a new webinar for our members and other colleagues. You may know that some of our colleagues in Virginia engaged in a statewide analysis of their monographic collections over the past couple of years. On September 13, we will hear from leaders of the VIVA consortium about the reasons for undertaking the study, the process they used, and the resulting collection retention agreements they were able to forge across academic libraries in the Commonwealth and for negotiating shared ebook collections. VIVA's activities in this regard may prove insightful / inspirational to others as well. WEBINAR: An Overview of VIVA’s Monographic Collection Analysis DATE / TIME: Sept 13, 2017 | 2pm ET / 1pm Central Time REGISTER: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3475247676886423555 The Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA), a consortium of 72 academic libraries in Virginia, conducted a monographic collection analysis between 2013 and 2015 with Sustainable Collection Services. In this project, VIVA analyzed the primary circulating holdings of 12 of its member libraries and compared them with the holdings of the consortium as a whole. This project led to the following agreements: • a Memorandum of Understanding to protect the over 72,000 unique and rare titles, • a Memorandum of Understanding for the cooperative retention of 3.5 million monographs, • a voluntary recommended threshold for new print monograph purchases across the consortium, and • a process for focusing VIVA ebook acquisitions on publishers with widely held and highly and recently used print titles. The data from the collection analysis was demonstrated to be particularly useful for the. This webinar will discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with this type of analysis, as well as the different ways the results were applied throughout the consortium. As always, these sessions are available at no cost to ASERL members, and will be recorded for later playback.
