Library Quarterly Report FY22 Q4: April-June 2022

Cataloging, Collections and Technical Services
Adapting to COVID-19

This quarter saw important additions to the library's physical collections, including several curated titles on Innovation to support the Office of Strategic Innovations Innovation Toolshed. This quarter also saw the addition an eBook version of the 7th edition of TRB's Highway Capacity Manual. This marked the first time the library acquired an eBook title "a la carte" as opposed to a "bundled" collection as part of a larger subscription — work managed by Gil Kenner. This was facilitated by the library's use of the EBSCOhost Collection Manager tool, which shows promise for acquiring similar high-value eBook titles in the future.
