ALCTS webinar: Finding Savings in the Collection Budget

Date: January 19, 2011

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 2pm Eastern, 1pm Central, noon Mountain, and 11am Pacific Time.

Description: Faced with budget cuts, libraries have had to identify savings within their collections budget that meet administration’s needs while trying to avoid major detriment to the information needs of the community. Through content analysis, discovery of alternative access to resources, and a couple of tough decisions, we’ll explore ways to save a lot of money without causing (serious) controversy.

Audience: Budget managers, collection management/development librarians, library managers, serials and acquisitions librarians.

Presenter: Jane Schmidt is the Head of the Collection Services Team at Ryerson University Library. She graduated from University of Alberta and started out at Ryerson working with serials holdings data as an intern through the Young Canada Works program, despite the fact that she declared that she would never work with serials after doing an inventory for Dalhousie’s Sexton Library during her first year at library school. In addition to her work in Collections and Acquisitions, she is also a business liaison librarian specializing in Marketing and Global Studies. She is passionate about weeding and efficiency, doesn’t tend to “sweat the small stuff”.
