Collections Allocations

The Collections Allocations Team Leader will lead a small group to devise a new method for making collection allocations. It is anticipated that this will be an 18 month long process with the goal of having a new allocation method in place beginning FY 2014.

The Team Leader will lead a small group that will:

  • Gain an understanding of the current collections budget structure
  • Benchmark collections budget allocation methods with our peer institutions
  • Examine LibQUAL data and the new LibQUAL Trifold data that pertains to collections
  • Devise a collections allocation model that reflects the priorities of the University and the University Libraries
