OHSU

Collection Assessement Recommendations

07/26/10  Portland, Ore.

The Data Subgroup has forwarded eleven recommendations to the Collection Development Committee.  Over the past year, the members of the Data Subgroup gathered data on OHSU faculty publications and citations, usage of OHSU Library print and electronic collections, scope of holdings and expenditures.  With the participation of subject liaisons, each OHSU department was profiled and the data was subjected to systematic analysis.

With the completion of the first OHSU Library Collection Assessment since 1986, the Library is better able to ensure that Library collections meet the needs of the research, education and clinical communities.  The Collection Assessment Report and associated data will guide Library purchasing and licensing decisions in the current fiscal year and beyond.  

Congratulations on a job well done to the members of the Collection Development Committee Data Subgroup: Carla Pealer, Emily McElroy, Judith Norton, Loree Hyde, Tami Wilkerson, Todd Hannon.  In addition, David Sayers made significant contributions.
