NASIG 29th Annual Conference
Taking Stock and Taming New Frontiers
May 1-4, 2014
Ft. Worth, Texas

Established in 1985, the North American Serials Interest Group, Inc. (NASIG) is an independent organization that promotes communication, information, and continuing education about serials and the broader issues of scholarly communication. NASIG welcomes anyone interested in the serials information chain. Inspired by the United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG), NASIG held its first conference at Bryn Mawr College in June 1986. The annual conference, usually held in late May or June, offers a premier opportunity to meet others representing the diverse interests of the serials community and to hear speakers who are on the cutting edge of scholarly communication.

Are we there yet? : Moving to an e-only collection development policy for books

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Online journals have been the preferred format for several years, with most academic libraries favoring online access to print subscriptions. However, the move towards an online-preferred collection development policy for books has not quite reached the same saturation, despite the popularity of options such as DDA and PDA. This session will review the literature on reasons for moving to an online-preferred collection development policy for all resources, including books, and provide information on user preferences, technological and platform hurdles to overcome, and information on current collection development policies for e-books.
