Where Does It Live? Storing Collections On and Off Campus: Part Two


Particularly in the humanities where the scholarly monograph is of critical importance, where and how books may be accessed by scholars is a sensitive issue. How should libraries be communicating with their communities about issues of access, convenience and responsiveness when it comes to the printed volumes that may take up so many valuable square feet of the library’s physical plant? Automation and offsite storage represent a wonderful benefit to institutions, but do researchers feel their needs have been slighted? How best to engage with the community on sensitive issues of preservation and best practice?

The December 18 segment of this two part webinar will be a roundtable discussion with the following individuals:

  • Darby Orcutt, Assistant Head, Collections & Research Strategy, North Carolina State University
  • Tim Ryan Morton, E-Resources Librarian, University of Virginia
  • Ben Walker, Associate Dean, Discovery, Digital Services & Shared Collections, University of Florida 
  • Rachelle McLain, Collection Development Librarian, Montana State University
  • Boaz Nadav-Manes, University Librarian, Lehigh University
  • Jay Forrest, Data and Statistical Analysis Manager Librarian, Georgia Tech

  • Registrants will receive detailed instructions about accessing the webinar via e-mail the Friday prior to the event. (Anyone registering between Monday and the close of registration will receive the message shortly after the registration is received, within normal business hours.) Due to the widespread use of spam blockers, filters, out of office messages, etc., it is your responsibility to contact the NISO office if you do not receive login instructions before the start of the webinar.

  • If you have not received your Login Instruction e-mail by 10 a.m. (ET) on the day before the webinar, please contact the NISO office at nisohq@niso.org for immediate assistance.

  • The NISO registration model assumes one computer in use per site (one registration = one computer in use for a group).  You may have an unlimited number of staff from your institution/organization view the live broadcast from that connection. Those unable to listen in to the live broadcast will be able to listen to the archived recording included in the cost of your registration.  Please contact NISO (nisohq@niso.org) if you have a particular need for additional access to the live broadcast at your institution.

  • If you are registering someone else from your organization, either use that person's e-mail address when registering or contact nisohq@niso.org to provide alternate contact information.

  • Speaker presentation slides and Q&A will be posted to this event webpage following the live webinar.

  • Registrants will receive an e-mail message containing access information to the archived webinar recording within 48 hours after the event. This recording access is only to be used by the registrant's organization.

For Online Events

  • You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.

  • Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't always 100% reliable.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your system is properly set up before each webinar begins.
