Buy this tape!

There was an informative meeting on the changes to the ABA questionnaire as it applies to academic law libraries to day, session F-7, What to Count: The Revised ABA Questionnaire. The single biggest change discussed was the title count changing from reliable access to ownership. This will change which titles can be counted among electronic materials, depending on the contract or license. Rita Reusch has a recent article about the planning and the changes, so look for that, but buy this tape if you missed the session. There were helpful tips on how to arrange cataloging records to make the reporting easier from Joe Hinger at St. Johns’s. But there were fireworks before the end, so I suppose the tape has a certain entertainment value as well.
