2017 Spring Workshop

Technical Services and Collection Management: A Match Made in Heaven
Friday, June 16, 2017
9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
State Library of Ohio
Registration: $30 ALAO members, $35 Non-Members

TEDSIG co-hosted a workshop with the Collection Management (CMIG) Interest Group on Friday, June 16th at the State Library of Ohio. The workshop focussed on how work in technical services can assist and inform collection managers, and vice-versa. For example, how can the statistics kept in acquisitions and electronic resources assist collection managers in retention and cancellation decisions? How can technical services and collection managers assist each other in examining open access materials, streaming video services, and so on?

Presentations:

  • Emily Flynn and Amy Pawlowski (OhioLINK). Creating Workflow Efficiencies in the E-book Ecosystem
    In the digital world, libraries don’t stand alone. They work closely with consortia, vendors, other libraries, and intermediaries. How are these relationships working? Are we getting the most out of our partnerships with other organizations or groups? How can we improve our external relationships and internal workflows?
    EBook Workflow Efficiencies (PPT)
  • Brian Gray and Stephanie Church (Case Western Reserve University). I’ll Be There For You: Why Research Services and Technical Services Librarians are Great Friends
    This presentation will show the benefits of technical services and collection managers partnering in book acquisitions. Together we have used data to maximize efficiencies, user experience, and content on a flat budget.
    I'll Be There For You (PDF)
  • Kevin Garewal, Frank Bove, Sean Kennedy (University of Akron). Blessings in Disguise: Rebuilding Efficiencies and Communication between Collections and Acquisitions
    This session will discuss best practices developed by Collections and Acquisitions at the University of Akron. In 2014-15, a total turnover occurred in the Collection Development and Acquisitions departments. This allowed for a complete redevelopment of coordinating workflows simultaneously. The session will discuss major coordinate projects, lessons learned, and future plans/hopes.

Tuesday May 21, 2013

Upstairs, Downstairs, and Off-campus:  Changing Locations in Technical Services Melanie McGurr Instruction & Access Librarian The Ohio State University Libraries Melanie earned her PhD and MLIS from Kent State University and has published in the areas of technical services and cataloging, including articles on workflow, the importance of practicums, public and academic collaboration, and remote technical services.  Melanie will share practical information garnered from her research and experience about the challenges and rewards of remote technical services.

Organizational Change @ Wayne State University Nancy Beals Coordinator for Acquisitions and Electronic Resources Wayne State University Libraries Change management is a difficult topic for anyone, especially libraries.  Libraries have been dealing with the many different aspects of change:  the bridge between old and new, print and electronic, and the decrease in staffing.  Wayne State University Libraries has been faced with these exact changes and more.  Some have happened in the past, but more recently, changes that have affected its culture.

Reproduction and Transformation, or Sahlins Among the Librarians Gwen Evans Executive Director OhioLINK Next generation change is difficult for any organization.  OhioLINK is entering its "second generation" on multiple fronts:  the leadership and staffing of OhioLINK central has changed, and many of the founding OhioLINK libraries' staff and directors have retired; and the leadership of a foundational OhioLINK partner, Innovative Inc., has changed also.  What are the implications for OhioLINK central and membership, and what sorts of strategies can organizations use to define and develop a new course?
