Quantitative Analysis of Commercial Online Resources Subscribed to by Twenty-Three Academic Libraries
Orr, Sandy; Head, Jennifer; Nance, Jim
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v22 n1-2 p11-17 2010
Collection development for commercial online resources can be difficult without established standards, such as those librarians have for books. Using the Carnegie Classification System can be a good tool for generating a list of comparable universities to discover what they subscribe to. Librarians at the Paul Meek Library at the University of Tennessee at Martin used this system to generate a list and then conducted a study to discover which commercial online resources universities had in their electronic database collections. We reduced the list to the top 40% and compared our library to the list. (Contains 2 tables.)
