Collection Services Policy and Procedure Manual: ELECTRONIC RESOURCES

Cataloging

Cataloging electronic titles and databases:

1.  In 2002, we decided to not catalog all titles in all databases.  The decisions of which ones to catalog are in the list of databases below.  For those we catalog we show our holdings in OCLC too but there have been exceptions to that rule.  We do not have our holdings showing up in OCLC for any cataloging we receive from Cassidy Cataloging Co.  - example, HeinOnline sets, Lexis, Loislaw and Westlaw treatise titles.  We also did not attach our holdings in OCLC for EEBO and Serial Set databases.  We were sent bibs from vendor and we just dumped them into Voyager.

 

2.  We add the 856 e-link to every manifestation of a work that we have bibs for in Voyager -- fiche, paper, etc.  

 

3.   Call numbers in 099 field will be ON-LINE PERIODICAL for all periodical/journal titles.  ON-LINE RESOURCE is used for everything else.

 

4.  We do not attach our holdings in OCLC for any Ebscohost ebooks that DBL gets and shares with us or Law Ebrary e-books.  We receive weekly files for Law Ebrary new titles  and download them into our Voyager catalog. Kathy receives Ebscohost ebooks files from DBL periodically. She culls through them and picks out law related titles and puts them into our Voyager catalog.

Electronic Resources

The content of an electronic resource is evaluated using the same criteria as for other library material.  Purchase suggestions come from numerous sources including librarians, faculty, vendor advertisements, and MALLCO trial subscriptions.   The following criteria are used when selecting electronic resources: 

  • Ease of use and reliability
  • Provide value added enhancements over print equivalents
  • Provide content in full-text as opposed to only abstracts or indexes
  • Provide content that is at least as extensive as the print equivalent
  • Electronic resources that omit material available in print equivalents are not preferred
  • Permanent ownership of online content is generally preferred over leasing
  • The library endeavors to purchase electronic resources at a discount through MALLCO.  Collaborative purchases with the Dulaney-Browne library are considered where appropriate.
  • Access through IP address with Easy Proxy off-campus verification is preferred over access via individual passwords.
  • Authorized users of resources should include the broadest scope of law library patrons as possible.  Oklahoma City University School of Law students, faculty, and staff should be included at the minimum.  Resources are preferred that also provide access for all members of the Oklahoma City University community including walk in users.
  • Resources are preferred that allow the fair use of database content  including lending content through ILL.
  • Electronic database vendors are asked to provide annual use statistics that are sufficiently detailed and specific to provide a meaningful illustration of database use.  Statistics are used when determining whether to continue subscriptions to electronic resources.
  • Each electronic resource will be added to the law library’s databases page and to the online catalog.  At the minimum a single catalog record will be added for each database.  Whenever possible individual records will be added to the catalog for each title available in an online database
  • Electronic resources that provide free MARC records are preferred over resources that charge for MARC records.  The law library purchases MARC records for electronic resources from Cassidy Cataloging and other vendors as budgetary funds permit

From Collection Development Policy

 

Electronic Books

The law library provides access to a collection of law and law related e-book titles through the Dulaney-Browne Library’s subscription to EBSCO.  MARC records for these titles are available in the law library’s online catalog. 

 

The law library began subscribing to EBRARY (now ProQuest Ebook Central) law books in 2013 through GOBI/Yankee Book Peddlar. We subscribe to Demand Driven Acquisitions through YBP Library Services.  Under this program MARC records for e-book titles that match pre-defined selection criteria are loaded into the library’s catalog.  Patrons will access e-book content by clicking a link in the record.  The library will automatically purchase any e-book that is accessed a pre-defined number of times.

 

 

 

 

Collection Services role

The Assistant Director for Collection Services maintains an excel list of all the databases that we receive by FY.  Payment and order information are recorded there as often times it is necessary to send this list to other librarians. A copy of this sheet is kept in the CIRC share drive in Databases folder. This folder also has copies of our licenses and contracts for each database.  Also a bib record and a PO are created for all databases - some are for payment purposes only, some have full cataloging and we have our holdings attached in OCLC.  There are also paper files concerning our orders, problems with the various databases, cancellations, etc.  These files are kept in Nancy's office as well as in emails in my "web titles" folder. 

Current List of Our Databases 2014

This is the current list of paid databases as of FY 16-17.   Nancy keeps this list current in excel and records payments there.  These are also paid in VACQ   Nancy also has an excel list of how many titles have been cataloged in each set along with our cataloging decisions to catalog or not to catalog   - - -
