Latin American Collections in a Consortial Environment
MetadataShow full item record
The presenters examine the intersection of resource sharing and international collections by considering how Latin American print materials are used within the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) and how this collective collection meets the needs of BTAA users. Their methodology considers patterns in ILL borrowing requests alongside WorldCat holdings data. The presenters will direct an activity with consortial collections data and guide discussion about potential collaborations for collecting in area studies.
