Seeking a Consultant to Assess a Law School Library’s Collection and to Develop an Acquisition Strategy

Charlotte School of Law would like to assess its library collection and subsequently develop an acquisition strategy. At this initial stage, we’re seeking qualified consultants who can respond to a more detailed RFP after signing a confidentiality agreement.

Our objective is to assess the library collection and to develop a collection enhancement strategy that will be used to guide future acquisitions. More specifically, we would like to:

Assist in reviewing and revising as appropriate collection development and information resource policies.

Develop a Collection Enhancement Policy that identifies goals and methodologies for acquisition and access methods that leverage finances.

Develop a written collection strategy plan to include project timelines.

Review existing collection development policies: strengths & growth areas, gaps & overlaps (in core and focus collections), and create strategies to meet change

Draft a set of guidelines and processes for purchase standards.

Analysis of current collection metrics (beyond ABA requirements) and revise as necessary to help support the continuous improvement needs of faculty and students.

Using appropriate benchmarks, make recommendations for annual spending levels to meet requirements of students and faculty
