ALCTS webinar: Holdings Comparisons: Why are they so complicated?
Date: November 28, 2012
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Description: As librarians look for innovative and effective ways to collaborate and share resources, understanding holdings of partner libraries is imperative not only for resource sharing but also for preservation purposes. How can libraries work together to compare their holdings as they think through issues of collection management and preservation? This webinar will discuss the challenges of comparing holdings and provide suggestions on how to understand the tools that are available to do this.
Learning outcomes: Attendees will learn about the tools that are available to help them compare holdings with their resource sharing partners.
Audience: The webinar is geared toward academic libraries and those interested in understanding how their collections overlap with those of a preservation agency, such as Portico or with the collection of another library.
Presenter: Amy Kirchhoff has been the Archive Service Product Manager for Portico since 2006. She is responsible for creation and execution of archival policy and oversees operation and development of the Portico website. Prior to her work at Portico, Amy was director of technology for JSTOR and also served as a member of the shared software development group at ITHAKA. She has published articles on Portico’s preservation methodology and policies in several publications including most recently Learned Publishing and The Serials Librarian.
Sponsor: ALCTS thanks ITHAKA for their support of this webinar.
