Involving faculty liaisons in a collaborative collection development process is a time‐consuming but worthwhile effort to increase library staff and faculty buy‐in in the repository. Involvement levels can be improved when staff workflows are refined and streamlined as part of an overall plan. This presentation will describe the development of a new set of procedures to automate the majority of the collection development effort using the SHERPA/RoMEO API and OpenRefine, leaving liaisons to focus on the personal outreach portions of the process. The presentation will include an overview of the literature as well as step by step descriptions of the process used at Loyola, lessons learned, and plans for the future.
