collectionHQ Expands Collection Development Tools to Ebook Titles

Baker & Taylor’s collectionHQ, a collection performance improvement solution that helps libraries better manage their collections, announced that many of its popular, evidence-based tools available for print and A/V titles are now available for ebooks as well. The addition of these tools, called the ebook module, means that for the first time, librarians can easily access data that compare ebook and print holdings. The ebook capabilities are included in the cost of a collectionHQ subscription.

By expanding into ebook data, collectionHQ allows users to spot trends in their ebook collections. For instance, they can measure how ebooks perform across platforms and identify performance patterns by format. Librarians can use this additional information on patrons’ e-reading behavior to help make better-informed spending decisions on electronic and print materials.

collectionHQ, used by many of the top library systems in the U.S., the U.K., and Australasia, is based on the proven Evidence-Based Stock Management (EBSM) methodology. By analyzing detailed circulation patterns, the methodology provides action plans to help librarians develop and manage collections, saving time and money, improving circulation, and aligning the collection with local demand.

collectionHQ’s powerful toolset provides valuable insight and clear direction so that librarians can perform tasks that used to take weeks or months in a matter of minutes. From collection maintenance to collection development, collectionHQ eases workloads and frees up staff’s time to work on other important areas within the library.
