Based on real life experiences, the presenters will detail how GOBI, a web-based application from YBP Library Services, can speed collection development selections, ordering, and MARC record exporting. Our objective is to share our successes implementing new collection development strategies and services. These include involving our faculty and library users in the library’s collection development process, establishing a DDA program to take the guess work out of providing the most relevant quality materials for our users, and collecting and reviewing statistics by fund code to help us determine in which areas users are seeking content. Attendees will learn how GOBI speeds selection by identifying items not currently in the library’s collection regardless of format. In addition, we will discuss how to view acquisitions by peer libraries and consortial partners as well as access professional book reviews that are available at point of selection within the interface. These techniques can be beneficial when performing collection assessments and preparing accreditation documents for review. Questions from the audience will be encouraged and attendees are welcome to share their experiences with GOBI and other collection development systems.
