To Buy or Not to Buy: Rolling into the Future with ILLiad

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This poster will showcase our new method for receiving purchase requests from faculty, staff, and students. ILLiad software is typically used for Interlibrary Loan activities only, but a special addon [produced by the IDS Project at SUNY] can be added and used for acquisitions and collection development activities/analysis. The poster will include the process of implementation and results of this new service. Discussion of OCLC's Collection Evaluation will also be included as a part of our collection analysis process. 

The objective of the session is to show how other libraries can leave the past behind and roll into the future by ditching paper request forms and embracing technology to help build collections. Attendees will learn about the technical process and why it might work well for their own purposes.
