Baker & Taylor Introduces Evidence-based Selection Planning

Baker & Taylor launched ESP (Evidence-based Selection Planning), a new service that is backed by data from collectionHQ and integrated with the TS 360 ordering system.

ESP uses collectionHQ’s data analytics to create a decision support system to help libraries chose which titles and quantities to order for their collections. The integration of ESP with TS 360 offers features such as customized searches, a product release calendar, and simple batch entry uploading and ordering. ESP identifies the top forthcoming titles based on past circulations, determines where to send copies to satisfy patron demand, and monitors budgets with collectionHQ’s spending plans.

“Our goal is to provide the public library with the decision support system to leverage demand analytics with future supply decisions in an efficient and performance-based workflow,” says Scott Crawford, collectionHQ’s VP and general manager.
