Where Does It Live? Storing Collections On and Off Campus: Part Two


Particularly in the humanities where the scholarly monograph is of critical importance, where and how books may be accessed by scholars is a sensitive issue. How should libraries be communicating with their communities about issues of access, convenience and responsiveness when it comes to the printed volumes that may take up so many valuable square feet of the library’s physical plant? Automation and offsite storage represent a wonderful benefit to institutions, but do researchers feel their needs have been slighted? How best to engage with the community on sensitive issues of preservation and best practice?

The December 18 segment of this two part webinar will be a roundtable discussion with the following individuals:

  • Darby Orcutt, Assistant Head, Collections & Research Strategy, North Carolina State University
  • Tim Ryan Morton, E-Resources Librarian, University of Virginia
  • Ben Walker, Associate Dean, Discovery, Digital Services & Shared Collections, University of Florida 
  • Rachelle McLain, Collection Development Librarian, Montana State University
  • Boaz Nadav-Manes, University Librarian, Lehigh University
  • Jay Forrest, Data and Statistical Analysis Manager Librarian, Georgia Tech
