No More Big Deal? Picking and Choosing Titles for Use

Date: June 10, 2020 01:00pm – June 10, 2020 02:30pm

More than 20 years since it was first introduced, some institutions are moving away from the “Big Deal”, which licenses institutional access to a critical mass of content. There are pros and cons of doing so, and this roundtable discussion will bring together speakers from institutions that have already stepped back from such deals and those for whom taking that step is — for whatever reason—- not yet an option. They will consider questions such as: What do their respective collection budgets permit? Do researcher or departmental needs run the risk of being sidelined or overlooked in either scenario? Is it really possible — or desirable — to go back to selecting content just for your own community’s needs?

This webinar is for everyone who wants to know more about this important topic, whether you work at an institution that is considering making — or has already made — this change, or at a publishing or other organization that is interested in understanding more about the decision-making process.  

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Keith Webster, Dean of University Libraries, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Evviva Weinraub Lajoie, Vice Provost for University Libraries, State University of New York at Buffalo
  • Darby Orcutt, Assistant Head, Collections & Research Strategy, North Carolina State University…
