Event Details

This is the eleventh in the series of NAG’s Collection Development Seminars for Academic Libraries.  The Seminars are always popular, attracting around 100 acquisitions librarians to discuss current trends and developments.

This year the theme is Disruption and Innovation are the New Normal with speakers from around the country.  Our papers include:

  • Rebecca Gower and Jayne Kelly (Cambridge University): Is it for teaching, for research, or both?: collaboration on eBooks in Cambridge.
  • Olivia Walsby (University of Manchester): Reading List Service overhaul at The University of Manchester Library; Are we nearly there yet…?
  • Natalia Gordon (Leeds Beckett): Behind the scenes of an implementation: Fear the change but create the workflow anyways
  • Sheila Candeland (Manchester Metropolitan University): ‘This is Manchester, we do things differently here’: the story of a collaborative model to support reading for pleasure
  • J. Mackenzie (Leeds Beckett): Breaking the perception of digital literacy, the contemporary conceptualisation of information technology.’ Addressing information and communications technology knowledge in HE students and staff.
  • Chris Harrison (Cambridge University Press): Disruption and innovation in the publishing landscape: challenging the binary divide

The panel session will focus on “Jumping Onboard: Getting spend in the framework” with Andrew Knight (Roehampton), Natalia Gordon (Leeds Beckett) Gavin Phillips (Imperial) and Anthony Sinnott (York) discussing ways to reduce spend with online retailers outside of the Joint Consortia Book Agreement Framework.
