Abstract

Most, if not all, academic collections librarians are experiencing or have experienced the need to adjust their spending and collections activities to adhere to decreasing funds and resources as publisher prices increase, the value of the dollar fluctuates, and library budgets remain unchanged. It’s an all too familiar story. If you are a collections librarian, however, and you have a vested interest in maintaining the strength of your valued collections despite the decreased funds available to ideally maintain them, you’re probably also assessing the ways in which you can make every dollar count. With only so much to spend, you want those dollars to be spent wisely.
