2. Five Colleges Consortium Amherst Hampshire Mount Holyoke Smith University of Massachusetts Amherst 3. 5C Libraries Cooperation Long history dating back to 1950s Strong resource sharing philosophy Geographic proximity 15 mile radius 5C committees Single shared ILS Shared print repository Delivery system that gets materials to userswithin 24 hours (M-F) 4. Project Impetus Five Colleges Presidents and Chancellor soughtincreased cooperation between institutions Five Colleges Library Directors definedcooperative collection development as a strategicpriority in 2008. Five Colleges Collection Management Committeeassigned the implementation Interest in maintaining overlap where appropriateand retain flexibility to expand base of resourcesavailable to library users 5. Defining Policy and Project Goals Increase number of unique titles purchased Utilize YBP as common supplier Implement by July 1, 2009 Needed data to inform subject areas High duplication with low circulation Shift from 10 subject areas to all bookspurchased 6. Implementation Required cooperation of selectors at all fivecampuses as well as engagement of thefaculty Widely divergent campus sizes, acquisitionsbudgets, and collection development practices 7. Hampshire College Smallest (FTE = 1,450) and newest of the FiveCollege campuses Purchases mainly support 100- and 200-levelclasses, duplicating local holdings as necessary For upper level courses, HC relies heavily onthe other FC collections Views the FC Library collections holistically No faculty selectors; no question of buy in Moved to YBP; GobiTween facilitates selection 8. Amherst College Student FTE = 1,800 Librarians & faculty members place premiumon browsability Very generously funded; often duplicatespurchases made by other Five College libraries Amherst faculty & librarians pushed back re:initial one copy proposal Like Hampshire, moved to YBP 9. Mount Holyoke College Student FTE = 2,100 Librarians & instructional technologists main selectors(merged organization) Orders flagged DN (designated need) if the bookneeds to be at Mount Holyoke, regardless of other FiveCollege locations Level of faculty purchasing is low (< 15%); facultyrequests are always considered designated need Faculty members voluntarily add notes toorders, stating either that another copy in Five Collegeswill sufficeor that there is a local need 10. Smith College Student FTE = 2,600 Academic depts. receive annual book allocation(approx. 55% of total monographs budget) Policy change required endorsement of theFaculty Committee on the Library Orders flagged SC copy essential when title isneeded regardless of other FC holdings Shelf-ready approval books for some subjects(15% of all YBP orders/year) 75% of monographic titles come from YBP 11. Univ. of Massachusetts, Amherst Student FTE = roughly 26,000 Erratic funding from state played major role in policy shift Acquisitions staff relies heavily on selectors to checkGobiTween for other FC orders Limited exceptions to the policy: Automatic orders for books receiving major reviews in the NYT Two small art & music approval plans New policy shared with campus community via FacultySenate Research Library Council; liaisons; Deans Council Most faculty members very supportive of this new policy 12.
