The first step in implementing the recommendations of the working group for Materials Acquired Digitally (MAD) has been to update the e-order form to accommodate orders for digital format materials. To see the new form, go to the regular e-order form (http://ucblibrary3.berkeley.edu:8080/eorder/eorder.process.logic) and click "Materials Acquired Digitally - Order Form" in the upper right.
The next step will be to create a streamlined process to move digital materials from the vendor to us, while automatically creating minimal MARC records that can be quickly added to OskiCat. The Catalog Department will then review and if needed, enhance the catalog records, which will be exported to OCLC.
Our Systems Office group, Library Applications & Publishing, is also managing a series of pilots recommended by the Materials Acquired Digitally working group. As we learn more through these pilots and the use of the new form about how digital materials are ordered, delivered and added to our collections, we will continue to find ways to automate this process.
I would like to take this opportunity to officially thank the members of the Materials Acquired Digitally working group for their outstanding work on a complex topic, but one that is critical to our future. My thanks to: Cheryl Cook, Harrison Dekker, Mary Elings, Lynne Grigsby (Chair), Gary Handman, Jean McKenzie, Trina Pundurs. The MAD final report can be found at:
If you have any questions, please send them to Lynne (lgrigsby@library).
I am pleased to announce the FY 2012 Collection Services Annual Report is now available.
This report reflects work performed by the Collection Services Council, the Collections Budget Group, the E-Book Advisory Group, the Scholarly Communication Advisory Group, and the staff who work in Acquisitions, Cataloging, Collections Analysis, Licensing, and Preservation.
If you do not have time to read the entire report, I would urge you to at least read through the Highlights section. The highlights have been arranged by subject to make visible the major themes that were pursued in FY12. As you will see, last year was a very busy and productive year for Collection Services. This is a good time for us to step back and recognize all that we have accomplished together.
Most importantly, I offer my sincere thanks to everyone who works in Collections Services and to the Library as a whole for your dedication to the Library. Your efforts have allowed us to provide our patrons with outstanding collections and services under very difficult staffing and financial conditions. All of us in Collections Services look forward to serving the Library and our patrons in FY13.
--Bernie Hurley, Director of Collection Services
Hathi Trust's June newsletter has some items you might find interesting:
Lynne Grigsby reports that Systems has successfully loaded ~1.5 million bib records to OskiCat for titles in Hathi that are in the public domain.
I'm very pleased to announce that beginning July 1, Kathleen Gallagher has agreed to join the Collections Budget Group as the Fund Coordinator for the Arts & Humanities Group.
Kathleen's experience and flexibility in helping the Library address new challenges and opportunities make her an excellent candidate for CBG. Her work on CSC, the consortial PDA position paper, the CDC journal evaluation project, and the Library Services Model self-study team have demonstrated Kathleen's broad and deep understanding of collection development issues and her ability to take a library-wide perspective.
Claude Potts, who has served as the A&H Fund Coordinator, will take over from Jim Spohrer, to become the Fund Coordinator for International and Area Studies.
I welcome Kathleen to CBG and thank Claude for his willingness to take on a new Fund Coordinator role.
