We are pleased to announce that a new collection development feature, “Smart Lists,” went live today. Smart Lists can be accessed in Content Reserve under “Select Express.” We also put together a short video (or click the image at right) to demonstrate the many ways Smart Lists can support your library’s collection development.
Smart Lists make ongoing collection development faster and easier, allowing you to create custom title selection profiles. With Smart Lists, you can enter factors into a selection profile including “What?”, “When?” and “How Much?” You can customize by author, series, review sources or publishers, and request titles not already in your collection. Options for Smart Lists include data-driven and editorial lists. With Smart Lists, you can choose to create a select list of titles or automatically purchase content according to the collection profile.
To start using Smart Lists, log into Content Reserve and click on the Collection tab > Select Express Tools> Smart Lists. Then click ‘Add’ to view the profile options.
If you have any questions or need assistance setting up Smart Lists, please contact your Collection Development Specialist or the Collection Development team at email@example.com, or call (216) 573-6886 ext. 6.
