Connecting People with Needed Resources Through a Successful Print Serials ReviewFlorida Library Association (2009)
AbstractThe purpose of this poster session is to share with conference attendees the procedure the University of South Florida Tampa Library went through in its recent print serials review. Two concepts motivated this project. 1) Journals have long been an important resource for faculty and students of an academic institution, but the format in which these resources are primarily used has changed with increased electronic availability. 2) Collection development librarians at USF wish to deliver high-demand resources to their faculty and students. In today’s economy, in order to make this concept a reality, low-use titles must be relinquished. The writers of this proposal, along with their colleagues at USF, performed a review of print journals with the intention of replacing low-use print titles with high demand print or electronic resources. This poster session will illustrate the process, resources (physical, electronic, and personnel), and the results of the serials review.
