Collections in Transition: E-Books and Collection Development

As collections move from the print to the electronic world, libraries must change their collection development practices and policies to reflect new opportunities and challenges.  In this session you will learn how libraries are transforming their collection development practices and policies to address the proliferation of electronic books, including acquisitions based on patron demand. In addition, learn about creating, managing and selling e-books from the publisher’s perspective, information that will give librarians valuable insight into e-books from press to desktop.

NISO's IOTA Initiative: Fixing OpenURL Links Using Data Analysis

NISO'S IOTA initiative (http://www.openurlquality.org/) is working to eliminate the major remaining problems with OpenURL linking. A public reporting tool is available on the IOTA site for users to compare link structures between OpenURL providers and to identify areas for improvement. Vendors and libraries have been contributing millions of OpenURLs for use in the reporting tool and in a scoring system being developed to rank providers by their OpenURL quality. Both IOTA tools could guide  link resolver vendors and libraries in adjusting their OpenURL setups, knowing that Web-scale discovery systems, for example, rely heavily on successful OpenURL linking. This presentation will explain how full-text linking evolved into OpenURL, what IOTA does to measure and improve OpenURL quality, and how institutions are using IOTA's work to solve OpenURL problems.
