Discovery and Acquisitions in Theological Libraries: A Conversation with University Presses

A session at 2014 American Theological Library Association Annual Conference

  • Patrick Alexander
  • Carey Newman

Saturday 21st June, 2014

8:00am to 9:00am (CST)

In 2008, AAUP surveyed academic librarians about what publishers’ communication and marketing tools were most useful in making their collections decisions. Since then, there have been many changes on both sides of the book acquisitions equation: from new digital sales tools and greater e-book availability from presses; to transitions in acquisitions models and preferred communications channels by libraries. This session will open up a discussion about the tools university presses use to inform the library market, and how theological libraries discover and make acquisitions decisions about university press content.
