Managing & Sustaining Collaborative Collections, Part Two



Collaborative collection development is a multifaceted process that requires navigating the intricacies of collaboration, partnerships with publishers and vendors, as well as a keen understanding of what is necessary to optimize its benefits for all stakeholders.  This two-part series will delve into effective strategies, case studies, and contemplations pertaining to sustainability, management, resource access, impact and preservation.  Focused on the immediate opportunities and challenges that must be navigated between libraries and publishers, the in-depth conversation will provide practical knowledge and skills necessary to develop and maintain a successful collaborative collection.

Confirmed speakers include Russell "Rusty" Michalak, Library Director, Goldey-Beacom College, Jesse Koennecke, Director of Acquisitions and E-Resource Licensing Services, Cornell University Library, and Jill Morris, Executive Director, PALCI .

The program is being coordinated by NISO Education Committee Member Russell "Rusty" Michalak

Additional Information

NISO assumes organizations register as a group. The model assumes that an unlimited number of staff will be watching the live broadcast in a single location, but also includes access to an archived recording of the event for those who may have timing conflicts. 

Educational program contacts and registrants receive sign-on instructions via email three business days prior to the virtual event. If you have not received your instructions by the day before an event, please contact NISO headquarters for assistance via email ( 

Registrants for an event may cancel participation and receive a refund (less $30.00) if the notice of cancellation is received at NISO HQ ( one full week prior to the event date. If received less than 7 days before, no refund will be provided. 

Links to the archived recording of the broadcast are distributed to registrants 24-48 business hours following the close of the live event. Access to that recording is intended for internal use of fellow staff at the registrant’s organization or institution. Shared resources are posted to the NISO event page.

Broadcast Platform

NISO uses the Zoom platform for purposes of broadcasting our live events. Zoom provides apps for a variety of computing devices (tablets, laptops, etc.) To view the broadcast, you will need a device that supports the Zoom app. Attendees may also choose to listen just to audio on their phones. Sign-on credentials include the necessary dial-in numbers, if that is your preference. Once notified of their availability, recordings may be downloaded from the Zoom platform to your machine for local viewing.
