"New Directions in Electronic Collection Development"
The author reviews current trends in the development of collections of electronic resources and discusses initiatives under way in the library community.

Director

"From the Inside Out: An Organizational View of Electronic Resources and Collection Development"
Electronic resources have changed the landscape of collection development in research libraries. The explosion of electronic resources was recently described in expenditure data from the Association of Research Libraries. Everyday activities have expanded and collections have become more closely linked to access. In this essay, I look at how the construct of electronic resources and collection development are changing libraries and librarians.

"What Administrators Talk About When They Talk About Libraries"
What do our senior university administrators think are the most meaningful opportunities and challenges presented to our libraries by the "digital revolution?" How can we successfully embrace the opportunities while providing stewardship to those rich, traditional collections in our care? How can we focus our attention on the right opportunities? The author will report on her work and conversations with administrators in the Big Ten universities, and will share her thoughts on the implications for libraries.

"Fishing the electronic river: disruptive technologies, the unlibrary, and the ecology of information."
The public has always understood what the library's mission is, yet our children are growing up with a number of alternative methods for finding information, and even among scholars the library may not be the best place to begin a search for published information. How might libraries adapt to these changing circumstances? An examination of library boundaries, the dangers of listening to your customers, vendor fragility, and the nature of discovery.


4:30-5:15 p.m.
Anne Marie Casey
Director, Off-Campus Library Services
Central Michigan University

"Collection Development for Distance Learning"
As distance-learning programs proliferate, collection development in academic libraries takes on an added complexity. Remote learners require access to collections outside of libraries and may not always be included in the user profiles of license agreements for electronic collections. In addition, some academic institutions offer programs and courses to distance learners, which are not offered on the main campus, but still require adequate collections. This presentation will cover many of the issues raised in building collections for distance learning programs.

"An Uncertain Trumpet: Developing Archival and Special Collections in the Electronic Era"
Librarians and archivists responsible for archives, rare books and manuscripts collections and the operations that surround them face all of the challenges of the electronic era. Because these collections are the foundation of scholarly communication in many disciplines and in society's expectation of unfettered access to information, there is special urgency to revive the active engagement of scholars and leaders in society to plan for the longer term future of these repositories. Archivists and special collections librarians must develop programs to educate leaders and seek ways to promote collaborative ventures with partners in business, industry, and government not traditionally within the reach of most of these repositories.


9:15-10:00 a.m.
Mary E. Jackson
Senior Program Officer for Access Services
Association of Research Libraries

"The ARL Scholars Portal Initiative: Improving Collection Access"

The Association of Research Libraries' Scholars Portal Initiative seeks to advance the concept of a collective research library presence on the web. The Scholars Portal is envisioned as a suite of Web-based services that will connect the higher education community as directly as possible with quality information resources that contribute to the teaching and learning process and that advance research. The Scholars Portal includes discovery (search tools); capture (harvesting and delivery tools); manipulation (text processing and citation-management tools); distribution (contribution and publication tools); and consultation (access to virtual reference services and electronic scholarly communities).

"Think Globally, Act Locally: The Digital Library and the Renewed Drive for Shared Collection Development."

Despite numerous cooperative collection development endeavors, the building of library collections has remained a highly individual and local practice. Electronic resources and the ability to digitize our physical holdings offer the potential to redirect our investments in collection building toward the creation of a global network that would serve an international community of scholars. To accomplish this, libraries need to develop collectively built and managed web sites that supplant the need for autonomous selector-created webliographies and which greatly expand the number of sources that can be identified and described.

"User Reaction to JSTOR: What Can We Learn From It?"

JSTOR, a not-for-profit organization focused initially on creating a trusted archive of the backfiles of important scholarly journal literature, sits squarely in the middle of a space marked out by the title of this meeting: "Electronic Resources and Collection Development." Is licensing an electronic resource "collection development?" Do labels and assumptions created in the paper world even apply in this new networked world?

One point around which there seems to be widespread agreement is that electronic technologies are changing the way scholarly literature is used. This paper will provide an overview of usage of the JSTOR archive. How does usage vary by such things as academic discipline, the age of the article, or institutional type? The paper will also share what we have learned through surveys about faculty and user attitudes toward electronic resources.
