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.

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 
• a Memorandum of Understanding for the cooperative retention of 3.5 million 
• 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
