Collection Development Best Practices Toolkit for Research/Instruction Librarians/Subject Liaisons: Stats and Data Tools


There are Collection Management Tools that can inform and illuminate the strengths, weaknesses and usage of our physical collections, by format and location code. SIERRA (Innovative System) has effective data tools to generate custom lists for new books, lists which can indicate collection age and usage, and a general scan of the collection by SCAT table (LC call number range) combined with collection usage. Consult with Collections Management staff for further information or to request these types of lists.
