In 2014, UdeM undertook its first community consultation project to identify what serials were essential for teaching and academic research. To evaluate the institutional serial collections, this collaborative approach was based bibliometric analysis and consultations with faculty members and graduate students. Bibliothèques UdeM repeated the exercise in 2022 to re-evaluate their serial collections, at a time when scholarly publishing is considerably changing, with the increased amount of open access content. Justine Ménard and Khalid Jouamaa, Direction des collections des bibliothèques UdeM, will present the highlights and results of this second consultation.
With the recent launch of North: the Canadian Shared Print Network/ Nord: Réseau canadien de conservation partagée des documents imprimés, large-scale collaborative efforts across libraries in different sectors will be implemented to ensure that the full scope of Canadian published heritage will be better preserved collectively. In this presentation, attendees will learn about the foundation and governance of the national network, potential benefits of Shared Print projects, work completed to date, and goals for the coming year.
Like many other similar institutions, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) is considering the best approach for users to access its collections. As it turns out, the traditional tools for documentary research do not always meet the needs of users. As such, geolocating the content of museums, archives and libraries is a promising avenue.
