Webinar: Rethinking Library Resources

Rethinking Library Resources: Sustainable Print Collections in a Digital Age
Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2012
Presenter: Rick Lugg

Library shelves are increasingly full, and more books are being published than ever. Yet surprisingly few are being used. In October 2010, Cornell University Libraries determined that 55% of its monographs had not circulated since 1990. Circulation per user continues to decline steadily. Meanwhile, library administrators seek to expand space for group study, information commons, writing centers, and cafes. Much of the available space is currently occupied by low-use print collections, stored and maintained at an estimated annual cost of $4.26 per volume in open stacks, $.86 per volume in high-density storage. For these reasons, print collections face increased scrutiny.
