Introduction

New developments in scholarly publication, the associated rising costs in acquiring and managing these resources, the challenges posed by new developments in teaching and learning and the increased emphasis on research have necessitated a strategic approach to library collection development.

This policy complies with the strategic goals of the library and the Institute to provide high quality and up to date information resources within the library to support the teaching, learning and research needs of students and faculty.
Two key roles highlighted in the mission statement of the library at ITT Dublin are to ‘acquire, organise and provide access to relevant materials and information sources by a variety of means including print materials and electronic resources’ and to ‘provide adequate, up-to-date materials without undue reliance on other libraries and external sources’

In order to achieve the aims and objectives outlined in the library's mission statement, the following policy has been produced to guide the provision of a high quality information resource collection. The policy will assist library and academic staff in the planning, selection, acquisition and management of resources in print, electronic and other formats and will provide the context for future library information resource development.


Scope

Covered in this policy are:

• Materials in print – books, theses, journals, newspapers, restricted loans
• Materials in audio visual – videos, DVDs, tapes, compact discs
• Materials in electronic format – databases, e-journals, e-Books


Aims and objectives

The aim of the collection development policy at ITT Dublin is to:

• Support teaching, learning and research within the Institute
• Provide appropriate information resources
• Provide information resources in a variety of formats
• Ensure collections are available locally and remotely
• Ensure equity in allocation of resources



Acquisitions priorities

• Materials of relevance to academic programmes
• Materials both reference and secondary sources
• Materials of a research nature or of relevance to other work of the Institute
• Materials of wider academic and cultural interest


Acquisitions criteria

• Provision of material of a relevant nature
• Provision of material of academic quality
• Provision of material that is up to data and current
• Provision of material that provides value for money
• Provision of material in many formats by exploiting information technologies
• Provision of accessible material
• Provision of material that provides equity across all library subject areas
• Provision of material from external sources via inter library loan and other services
• Encourage feedback from library users


Budgeting

The annual library budget funds the majority of library information resources with certain funds being allocated each year for books, journals and online databases. Each department receives a minimum annual amount. The acquisition and allocation of budgets is governed by the SMT (Senior Management team).

Each department within the institute is allocated a certain amount of the library budget each year to purchase library items. The spending of this funding is at the discretion of the head of each department, on the advice of his/her academic staff. Teaching staff will also be advised by consulting with their relevant subject liaison librarian. It is advisable that the amount of money be spent proportionately to the number of students that each department is likely to have and the number and type of courses available. Any department that fails to spend or commit its monies during the course of the year will have its monies absorbed back into the library budget at year end.

Each department may also make requests in their annual budget allocation for library spending as part of their departmental budget. This serves to supplement existing library allocations.

The Institute librarian from time to time may request additional funding for library materials from SMT where appropriate.


Budget constraints

In acquiring all materials for the library there are increased financial issues that need to be considered. Inflation and the rising costs of information resources including books, journals and electronic resources pose significant challenges. The library is proactive and will continue to investigate delivery mechanisms that provide value for money resources and reduce costs. Discounts are often negotiated with book suppliers, online journals are investigated as viable alternatives and consortia are often considered to provide cheaper electronic access to databases.


Sources of library material

The librarian is responsible for acquiring library materials on behalf of the library and does so as follows:


Purchased materials

The bulk of library material is purchased. In acquiring these resources from a range of vendors and other suppliers the library adheres to certain performance indicators such as value for money, speed of delivery and customer service to ensure optimum terms for the Institute . The library will continue to investigate and evaluate new suppliers and the most appropriate delivery mechanisms.


Donations

Library materials received via donation are also considered. The Institute library is grateful for donations and its collections have been enhanced by contributions from staff members, former students, local industry, and other individuals.

All donated materials will become the property of the library and will be evaluated and handled in the same manner as purchased materials. Donations will only be accepted if they are of relevance to the collection, while poor physical condition and space constraints may also result in donations being refused.

The library reserves the right to decide which material should be added to its collections and the right to give to other libraries, or otherwise dispose of donations that are not added to the collection.

No conditional terms of acceptance are permitted. If the materials can be used by the library, they will be integrated into the collection and standard circulation procedures will be followed. When materials are inappropriate for the library's collection, they will be disposed of in the same manner as other library materials.

The library welcomes donations of complete runs of journal titles, which reflect the subject ranges taught at the Institute. Please note that the library will not accept donations of incomplete collections of journals, or collections where issues are missing. The library also reserves the right not to accept collections of journals which can be accessed via our electronic information delivery services.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to the library should print out and sign the donation form (Appendix 1), and submit it with materials to be deposited in the library. After reading the terms of the collection development policy please contact us if you do not want your donation to be handled in this manner. If we do not hear from you within 10 days we will handle the material as indicated above.


Inter Library Loans

Books or journal articles not available in the library’s print or electronic collection are acquired via our inter library loan service which provides us with materials from other Institutes of Technology, Subito, the British Library. The service is targeted at staff and postgraduate students. It is library policy to avail of any scheme which provides access to other printed collections. The library at ITT Dublin will provide similar access to its collections under such schemes.

The library absorbs the cost of the inter library loan service. Material is exchanged among the Institutes of Technology at no cost but charges are continuing to rise with some of our other suppliers. The library is committed to investigating suppliers that supply materials at lower rates.


Official and government publications

The library receives official and government publications on a regular basis from Government Departments, State Bodies and other agencies.


Material deposited by the Institute

The library receives material from across the Institute in the form of theses submitted in support of Degrees, Masters and PhDs.


Web sites

Material is attained via the web. Different subject portals yield quality information that further supports academic programmes and research within the Institute.


Material selection and collection management

In selecting materials the librarian will consider new delivery mechanisms and is guided by certain general criteria which include:

• relevance
• currency
• quality
• price
• format type
• anticipated use level

It is the policy of the library that the most up to date edition of a publication is purchased, in view of maintaining an up to date and current collection. Older editions are removed from stock as the more current ones are added.

In acquiring books the library will try to limit the number of copies per title to six, this is to encourage development of the collection across different subject areas. Space constraints also make it difficult for the library to house multiple texts. Academic staff will be made aware of the above when acquiring copies of core texts.

The library will purchase materials in DVD or HDD format, rather than VHS format as VHS is nearing obsolescence, unless the material is not available in any other format.


Library Stock

Material is selected on the basis of suggestions made principally by academic staff but also by students, library staff and other members of the Institute’s learning community. The final decisions about what to select and purchase remain with the librarian. Subject liaison librarians work in close collaboration with academic staff to elicit feedback and to identify quality resources for purchase.

All teaching staff can suggest and recommend books for the library to purchase. This is done by filling out a book order form, which is available on the library website (Appendix 2). Key course texts should be a priority for lecturers when making recommendations.

To identify quality material for purchase academic staff are advised to check the library web catalogue - (http://library.ittdublin.ie/search/) - to see if the item they would like to purchase is in stock, what edition it is, and how many copies the library has, and then click on the ‘Amazon’ button to see if the title they require is available there. The list of publishers catalogues on the library website can offer further guidance on stock selection. Faculty are asked to enter all prices in euro when submitting any book orders.

Academic staff should keep in mind the need to maintain equity and serve all constituencies of the Institute’s learning community when selecting materials for the library to purchase. All book order forms must be approved by the head of each department. When approved the head of the department should forward forms to the librarian.

The heads of academic departments or their academic representative(s) are asked to coordinate and forward their book list to the librarian by May 1st each year to facilitate the aim that all books be ordered, received, classified, catalogued, processed and placed on the shelves before the beginning of the next semester.

If orders are received after this date, the library cannot guarantee that they will be available to students at the commencement of the new academic year.

As with book selection, suggestions for new journal subscriptions must be forwarded through the head of each department. Lecturers should inform heads of departments if they would like to see a journal title, or subscription database added to the library’s holdings. Heads of departments should then liaise with the librarian or library staff member responsible for journals.

The full text of articles from a wide range of journals can be accessed through the library's online database subscriptions. The library does not take out print subscriptions to titles that are normally available electronically through existing subscriptions to online databases and journals.

The rising costs of journals are considerable and on an annual basis the library will send out a quotation request to various journals suppliers for the provision of a subscription service for journals for the coming year. An extensive evaluation process is conducted before selecting a particular vendor using criteria such as customer service, reporting, EDI facilities, consolidation service, delivery times, payment options, cost estimates. All suppliers who respond to the quotation request will be notified of the outcome.


De-selection policy (weeding)

The library may withdraw items no longer deemed useful from its collections. Decisions will be made judiciously, keeping in mind that the library priorities are to serve the Institute's learning and research community.


Remove

Criteria to remove include:

• content
• current and projected use
• out of date material
• superseded material
• material condition
• duplication
• Space restrictions

In addition to the criteria above decisions will be made on the basis of circulation statistics, the judgement of the subject liaison librarians and in consultation with relevant academic staff. A systematic weed of the main library collection will be conducted at least every two years. Weeded material will be made available to institute staff and students before being disposed of. A list of books that are removed will be made available to academic staff.


Repair

Materials for repair are removed from the library collection and repaired on a regular basis. These materials are returned to the library collection as soon as possible.



Replace

• items that have been damaged with strong and current circulation statistics
• titles that have been superseded
• titles that contain material of an obsolete nature


Collections

The library collection at ITT Dublin has traditionally supported print and electronic materials. However developments in scholarly publication, the open access model, emerging technologies and new subscription models pose many challenges. The variety of electronic formats in which information is now delivered have brought issues to the fore which need to be addressed such as copyright, licensing, authentication, accessibility, archiving, differing VAT rates. The library will consider new ways of accessing scholarly communication and will avail of the format which is most beneficial to our users. Decisions will be made in close collaboration with academic colleagues.

The library will exploit new technologies where possible to enhance educational quality and move towards the provision of electronic information resources such as eBook collections. The library is committed to offering a single point of access to all its resources and the ability to cross search multiple resources. It is an objective of the library to leverage other tools such as the Institute’s virtual learning environment to further promote and provide access to its collection.


General Collection

Printed monographs make up the majority of the library collection with most of these being made available for loan. The age profile of the library collection is very recent, with the focus on providing access to up-to-date material. All subject areas are covered with material being classified by the Dewey Decimal System. The library catalogue lists all holdings - books and other material held in the library. The library is committed to exploiting developments such as e-books where benefits exist to our users in relation to cost and off-campus access.


Short Loan

The short loan collection is made up of core text books as recommended by academic staff. If there are multiple copies of a text in the library, and (for whatever reason) a lecturer anticipates that it may become highly used, the lecturer may contact the library and request that a copy be made short loan for a specified period. The short loan collection is physically located behind the main library desk, with the loan period 24 hours (except at weekends) for full time students and 48 hours for part time students.


Reference

This collection is made up of materials such as atlases, bibliographies, biographies, dictionaries, directories, encyclopedias and indexes and abstracts.

If there is a single copy of a text in the main library collection, and (for whatever reason) a lecturer anticipates that it may become highly used, the lecturer may contact the library and request that it be made reference for a specified period. Multiple copies of the same text will not be placed in the reference collection.

Materials purchased by the library that are of a high value, usually €200 or more will automatically be placed into the reference collection. Final decision is at the discretion of the librarian.

Material in the reference section is for library use only and is located on the ground floor of the library.



Journals

The library subscribes to an extensive collection of both print and electronic journals.

Print – These journals are located on the ground floor of the library and are arranged alphabetically by subject. Past issues are located under each shelf. Further back issues are held in the central store and may be requested from the main library desk by completing a request form at the library desk or online.

Staff can borrow journals for one week with the exception of the current issue. Students cannot borrow journals. A complete listing of all journals in both print and electronic format is available by browsing title(s) from the online alphabetical index of journals, or via the library online catalogue - http://millennium.it-tallaght.ie/search

An A-Z catalogue of all of our library holdings in print, listing both current and non-current subscriptions, is displayed in the journal area and at the library desk. Currently subscribed electronic journals not available through our electronic databases are also listed.

Additional print journal articles are available via the library’s inter library loan service.

Electronic – journals are also available electronically via online subscription databases or are subscribed to on individual basis. Many of these journals are accessible directly via the library website. A full listing of all our subscription databases can be found on the databases and electronic resources listing on the library online catalogue - http://library.ittdublin.ie/screens/er.html


Exam Papers

Original copies of exam papers are delivered from the examinations office to the library at the end of the semester examinations. The library will not accept exam papers from any other source. Original copies of exam papers are stored in the library. Copies for previous years are held in the library central store and are also available for reference if required. The library does not receive copies of repeat examination papers.

All exam papers set by ITT Dublin and delivered to the library by the examinations office are scanned and made available electronically. This creates a searchable database and ensures only registered library users can access the exam papers via the library’s website.

All electronic exam paper files are saved to the library’s shared staff drive and archived onto CD-ROM.


Audio Visual

The library holds a collection of DVDs, videos, CDs and audio cassettes on the ground floor. DVD format is now the preferred format when purchasing or replacing materials. This will be reviewed regularly by the librarian to ensure that new developments such as HDD format are considered. Audio visual materials are made available for borrowing for a short period and there are video / DVD facilities for their viewing on the mezzanine level of the library.


Online Databases

Online databases cover all of the major disciplines of the Institute’s programmes. They are evaluated and reviewed annually by library staff, relevant academic staff, heads of school and heads of department. Usage statistics help to inform this process. Trials of new databases are organised by library staff with the relevant publishers and feedback is invited from all library users.

Subscription database are paid for from the library and departmental budgets. The library will continue to investigate consortia as means of cheaper provision to online databases. A full listing of all our subscription databases can be found on the databases and electronic resources listing on the library web site.


Newspapers

The Irish Times and Irish Independent are available on a daily basis. The Financial Times and the Sunday Business Post are only available during term time. Back issues of The Irish Independent and the Sunday Business Post are kept for four weeks, back issues of the Irish Times and the Financial Times for 2 weeks. Online access is also provided to the Irish Times and other international newspapers via our subscription databases. Details of relevant passwords can be requested at the library desk. Newspapers are for library use only and are not available for loan.


Special Collections

The library houses a collection of print materials which through their age, rareness, condition and format are considered for placement in the library’s special collections. This collection is acquired by donation or through transfer from the library’s general collection. This material is on open access within the library but much of the material is for reference purposes only and not available for loan.


Official Publications

The library collection is also made up of official government publications such as annual reports, legislative documents, policy documents, discussion documents, and statistics. The library online catalogue lists all official publications held in the library and provides electronic links to many of these documents which are available on the Irish Government website - http://www.irlgov.ie/. It is library policy to dispose of a print copy if an electronic version exists except where the publication is of specific interest to ITT Dublin, the print copy is retained.


Archiving Theses & Research Projects

The library keeps a separate collection of theses and student projects which have been submitted to the library by the academic departments. Theses and student projects are the responsibility of the department to which they are submitted. It is the responsibility of each department to ensure that no copyrighted, confidential, or industry sensitive materials are included in theses / student work submitted to the library.

The library assists the departments in providing access to these materials, once cleared, via the library catalogue and the provision of physical space in the library. Once catalogued, they are made available for reference and consultation purposes. Other modes of access may prove more beneficial in the future, and the departments need to consider this in light of ongoing technical developments.

Theses of a confidential or sensitive nature are held in restricted access by the relevant academic department. On submission of a thesis, a submission for thesis to library form (Appendix 4) is completed with the student being asked to indicate whether there is any confidential or proprietary information in the thesis. If there is confidential information then the thesis is labeled and added to the archive within the academic department and is thereafter the responsibility of the department to store and list the contents of its archive. If the information does not require restricted access then it is sent to the library for open stack access. Only material added to the library collection is listed on the library catalogue.

Hard copies of theses will be retained indefinitely depending on Institute space allocation. Where theses are submitted with material in digital format, it is library policy to retain these and make them available for use in consultation with the relevant department. No materials of this nature have yet been submitted to the library.

The library will also consider theses being submitted solely by electronic means in line with the Strategy for Research and Innovation 2008-2012 . On theses being made available by the department in electronic format, the library will make provision for their retention and use. This would be dependent on having an institutional e-theses management system in place and additional staff resources to facilitate the management system (e.g. research librarian, institutional repository).


Copyright considerations

The library is committed to making our users aware of the implications of copyright and we do this with relevant signage around the library informing our users of copyright law. Users are also made aware of the considerations for copyright in relation to electronic databases and the Internet.

Your attention is drawn to the Copyright and Related Rights Act, 2000, the associated copyright notice, statutory instruments and ministerial orders. The copyright notice for higher education, user guidelines and the Irish excluded works list (Appendices 5-7) are on display at all photocopiers within the Institute.

Please note that the Institute pays fees to the ICLA, this gives a limited license from some publishers for the copying of materials. Before copying materials please consult the licence, user guidelines and the Irish excluded works list:
http://www.icla.ie/index.php?education_highereducation
Items such as diagrams, maps charts and photographs are considered to be distinct and complete works in their own rights. Photocopying of materials such as these constitutes a copyright infringement.


Space

Space in the library is at a premium. The library endeavours to have its collection available on open access on the library floor and in accordance with international best practice, the library operates a policy which favours access to collections over off-site holdings. The library accepts that every text or item cannot be stored in the limited amount of shelving available. If an edition of a title is replaced with a more recent one, the older edition will be removed from library stock. Due to space constraints, the library does not normally carry more than 6 copies of any one edition of any one title.

If certain items are available electronically at no extra cost, the library will favour this mode of information delivery to an onsite holding.


Conservation and preservation of resources

The library is committed to conserving and preserving library materials and operates a policy of tagging, covering, labeling and stamping all items in the collection. This is to ensure that the collection is maintained for use by future members of the Institute's learning community.


Policy review

This policy will be available on the library website and will be subject to a regular review to ensure it’s effectiveness as a vehicle for the delivery of relevant materials, in response to changing nature of the library information environment and academic developments within the Institute.

Appendix 5 – user guidelines

To be displayed beside all copying machines throughout all licensed Educational Institutions used for the
production of multiple and non-fair dealing copies.

This Institution has an ICLA Licence, enabling staff and students to copy extracts, within clearly defined
limits, from books, journals and periodicals published in Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland,
Malta, Spain, Australia, Canada (including Quebec), New Zealand, South Africa, the Netherlands, Norway and
the USA.

What the Licence covers:

The Licence permits the copying of extracts from all books, journals and magazines published in Ireland (and
the other mandating territories) except those shown on the List of Excluded Categories and Works. All staff
and students at this establishment are licensed to make copies provided they comply with the licence terms
and conditions.

No copying may exceed 5% of the published volume or issue or, if greater:

• one complete chapter from a book, or
• one article from a journal or periodical, or
• a short story or poem not exceeding 10 pages in length from an anthology published in the above listed countries.

No systematic or repeated copying of the same material which would breach the above limitations is
permitted during any one course of study/module, i.e.: progressively copying more than the above limitation
for the same class of students.

The creation of enlarged copies and copies onto acetate is also permitted. The same limitations (above)
apply to these copying types.

It is a condition of the Licence that the number of multiple copies of a single item of Copyright Material shall
not exceed the number needed to ensure that each member of the class has one copy only and two for the
tutor. Copies may also be made for meetings of staff and managers.

No record of copying is required under the licence. If an Educational Institution is selected to log its copying
(either via a survey or record-keeping forms) ICLA will contact the Institution about this separately.
