Does anyone have the ability to buy whatever their patrons need? Do you have enough information to make effective decisions on when to purchase, license, and borrow? When should you buy? When do you license? When should you borrow? The purpose of our December webinar is to share information from three projects that can aid your institution with these decisions.
Each project presenter(s)
will speak for approximately 20 minutes. After the presentations,
there should be ample time to ask questions via the chat feature of
our webinar program. We are encouraging and anticipating a highly
Nancy Kress, UNLV; and Lars
Leon, University of Kansas will share some results from their recent cost study
that examines the true costs to provide resource sharing. This information will help

useful information when deciding between purchasing versus borrowing.
Nancy Kress is the Library Supply Chain Manager for University of Nevada Las Vegas Libraries. Her research includes applying supply chain management and Lean and Six Sigma concepts to library operations. Lars Leon is the Head of Resource Sharing at the University of Kansas Libraries. He is also involved with their assessment, staff development and organizational development. His current research emphasis is on looking into costs and then using that information to help understand the value that their patrons place on their services.
