Abstract

The introduction of a statewide electronic resources collection and its impact on one institution's serial use study is examined. The Hunter Library at Western Carolina University emharked on a serials-use study at the same time that North Carolina introduced a new statewide collection of electronic resources (NCLive) including many full-text serials. This session gave an overview of the serials collection development cycle at WCU, the impact that NCLive will have on that process, and how data is collected, managed, and analyzed for serials collection development.
