For several years now, libraries have had access to collection development reports via their integrated library or electronic resource management systems, such as overlap analysis. However, these reports are often standalone, and are not combined with other key collection analysis data, such as COUNTER usage statistics. This session seeks to demonstrate how libraries can easily combine overlap analysis reports and usage statistics to generate powerful custom reports showing deeper information about subscribed electronic resource collections, such as unique title usage and overlapped title usage. Such information can be used to make more informed collection development decisions, especially in libraries with limited budgetary resources. This session will focus on tools available through Serials Solutions 360 and Alma, but the concepts should be applicable across most available library management systems.
