Abstract or Summary
  • In this age of budget cuts, conversations with faculty do not always have a positive tenor. Faculty may feel that with the cancellation of many journals, library collections no longer reflect the research activities of the campus community. This presentation will describe two citation data studies done to evaluate current collections in light of rapidly changing academic programs, library collections, and services. The Water Resources Graduate Program citation study was undertaken to evaluate OSU Libraries’ response to a new academic program proposal completed in 2003. Citations from research papers by fourth year veterinary students provide data that are useful for making evidence‐based collection development and management decisions. Using the strength of the subject liaison model, these studies can also provide a unique service to faculty of these programs: a summary of what the students of the program have been citing in a way that the faculty likely do not have time to track or analyze on a program‐wide basis. Sharing results with faculty is a way to demonstrate how the library is working to align the collections with faculty and student research.
