Abstract
  • Subject reference librarians at OSU create subject guides to assist library patrons to locate pertinent sources on their own. These guides direct patrons to information in a variety of formats, including books, series, and journals, but often lack Internet resources. The original intent of the CAMEL Project was to set up a web-based subject gateway that would be both a research guide as well as an electronic collection development tool. The resources collected were to be relevant to the teaching and research mission of OSU. The gateway database was expected to be added to on an ongoing basis and to be accessible by subject. In order to create and expand the database, the librarians wanted to solicit faculty recommendations for web sites that would be pertinent to their teaching and research. At OSU, this concept is new, although both librarians and faculty are used to print book and journal requests and subscriptions. Subject reference librarians were accustomed to collection development guidelines specifically designed for print sources. Subject gateway software known as ROADS (Resource Organization and Discovery in Subject-based Services) was brought to the attention of the library. Two of our reference librarians recognized the potential of this software as a web-based collection development tool. They made a presentation to their library colleagues about the ROADS software and suggested the possibility of using it for collection development. It was also seen as an innovative opportunity for interacting with academic faculty.
