Improving Not Reporting
- Use Evidence
- ILS Neutral
Start using evidence!
collectionHQ is the only solution based on the proven Evidence Based Stock Management — EBSM methodology which has been practiced in public libraries for more than 25 years.
Using EBSM to manage your collection helps to save time, reduce wasteful purchases and better align supply with demand.What’s more, the tool allows you to monitor trends on a local, regional and national level, ensuring that your library is equipped with the hottest titles.
collectionHQ is not another reporting tool, it focuses on improving collection performance.
collectionHQ identifies those items in your collection that need to be replaced or moved to another location of higher demand. It is the only tool which offers you the ability to create ‘Schedules’ that can be shared across a library system to ensure collection management tasks are carried out regularly and on-time.
Your patrons will love the results!
Other tools end with the data, collectionHQ starts with data.
Are you interested to know how your vendor selected items are performing? How about that new collection that was introduced last month? Experiment with new collections, placements and processes then monitor your results to see what’s flying off the shelves with collectionHQ’s comprehensive performance tools.
Don’t limit your choices!
Only collectionHQ is 100 percent ILS agnostic and is interoperable with all vendor systems, so if you change your ILS you don’t need to retrain your staff or re-setup collection management schedules.
The only tool based on a proven methodology
EBSM is a complete methodology for Collection Performance Improvement which assists librarians in making the management of the collection more effective, more customer focused, less wasteful, more measured and performance based.
Used in libraries for over 21 years, the repeatable EBSM framework uses data from a library’s own ILS/LMS database along with local target settings as its evidence base. The powerful EBSM toolset uses this evidence base to perform complex comparisons between the locally set targets and the current situation to provide a series of action plans to help library staff drive performance towards targets
