Occidental College Library is just completing a major collection reshaping. Fifty percent of our print collection has been de-acquisitioned during the past year. To ensure continued access to discarded materials, we have used IDS's Gift & Deselection Manager to find online coverage data and load it using the Coverage Load feature in Millennium. We hope that having electronic coverage for these weeded titles will soften the shock of a suddenly downsized collection. GIST, also from IDS, has allowed us to combine our Acquisitions and ILL

Operations to incorporate fast fulfillment of requested items.

  • What data IDS's Gift & Deselection Manager can discover for you.
  • A real-world example of how GIST can be used for acquiring PDA materials.
  • How staff can use ILLiad addons to streamline ILL and Acquisitions processing.
