ACQUIRING NETWORKED RESOURCES:
RUL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Networked Resources Evaluation/Selection Teams
October 16, 2008

The evaluation and selection of networked electronic resources has become a significant task in collection development for the Rutgers University Libraries as a system. The Teams' actions have an immediate impact on the resources available on all campuses and to all members of the Rutgers community, and they generally require the expansion of central funds to facilitate the purchase of these resources that benefit the entire system.

In order to carry out the evaluation of networked electronic resources, two categories of teams will be established: Subject Teams and a General/Reference Team and will report to the Library Resources Council. These evaluation and selection teams are vital to expanding our online resources. The team approach is intended to encourage collection discussions and decisions that are based on system-wide disciplinary needs rather than on local priorities. The evaluation of networked resources is an on-going part of the responsibilities of every librarian. Furthermore, the acquisition of some resources may be undertaken using funds assigned to individual selectors.

The following guidelines apply to all Teams:

1. Subject Teams: Arts and Humanities; Sciences; and Social Sciences
