Description

Most libraries belong to multiple resource sharing arrangements and use several different fulfillment systems, so getting a complete picture of collection sharing activity has become like trying to get a snapshot of Bigfoot. In this webinar, Program Officer Dennis Massie gave an overview of how OCLC Research is analyzing five years' worth of collection sharing activity by the eleven members of the Borrow Direct consortium to provide an overview of the borrowing and lending patterns of one very active and innovative group.

Questions addressed by the study include:

  • Is overall sharing volume going up or down?
  • How is utilization of the various resource sharing models and venues evolving?
  • Is there any truth to the rumor that the proliferation of e-resources in libraries is actually making interlibrary loan obsolete?

This webinar recording should be of interest to anyone working with collections, e-resources, resource sharing, or data analysis. It included plenty of time for questions, observations, and discussion.
