Should Consortia Replace Local Collection Development? "Is digital different? New trends and challenges in acquisition and collection development" IFLA Preconference Munich, 30 - 31 July 2003 Alice Keller, ETH Library Zurich Should Consortia Replace Local Collection Development? . of course they shouldnt!

But why not, actually? Collection Development: What does it mean? Collections are caused to: grow, become larger, more advanced. Good collections dont develop by chance or coincidence, but by careful planning and selection. Collection Development:

What sets the limits? Collections are developed along collection profiles defined by user requirements. The limits to collection building are financial constraints, available space, resources for processing. Collection Development: What sets the limits? User requirements

Funds Speaking to colleagues, financial constraints are the greatest limit to collection development: Most librarians would agree that they should have more funds to fulfil all user

A further 53% are not accessed more than 50 times. 22 journals are accessed more than 3000 times. Few journals are consulted heavily,

many journals are consulted very rarely. ETH Library, 3000 e-journals, 12 months 2001 Which are the Users Requirements? Looking at Databases 34% of all accesses are to one database alone. 60% of all accesses are to the top 5 databases. ETH Library, 80 databases with usage statistics, 12 months 2002

The Consortium That Ate the Library GASCO The Consortium That Ate the Library Big Deal Getting Things Right It is not consortia, but Big Deals, that are replacing local collection development.

? Consortia = Big Deals Getting Things Right: Big Deals Big Deals Offer desirable short-term benefits and expanded information access for users. On the long run they will weaken the power of librarians. Librarians will lose the opportunity to shape the content or quality of journal literature. Short-term institutional benefits are achieved at

long-term expense of the academic community. (K. Frazier, 2001) Getting Things Right: Consortia Consortia not Big Deals mark the beginning of a new form of in-depth library cooperation. Consortia involve sharing of resources in many areas: collection building computing expertise server infrastructure digital preservation management of electronic resources

increased purchasing power New Opportunities for Consortia Consortia should be seen as a new hub of indepth library collaboration in the area of collection development. Looking beyond licensing of commercial products: A consortium can act as an ideal nucleus for innovative forms of library co-operation. This can include building up document servers, launching digital archives or digitising material.

Finding the Right Partners Alliances are powerful tools for a competitive advantage. However, consortia are mostly formed on a regional/national basis. Powerful consortia should be alliances based on: common interests (e.g. subject areas) strategic or political goals (e.g. coalition of large libraries of a city) technical co-operations (e.g. common IT infrastructure) The End
