SPEC Kit 324: Collecting Global Resources  · 57
months in Africa doing preliminary field research. A stipulation of this grant is that each recipient must consult with the
Herskovits Library curator prior to departure to determine what the recipient must do for the library while in Africa.
Title-by-title selection is a large component for all areas.
Most Often Used
Byzantine and Modern Greece Studies: We receive slip notifications from a Greek vendor. In addition, we review
materials available on the websites of several Greek and Cypriote vendors, as well as ordering Byzantine and Modern
Greece titles available from a number of European vendors and reviewing regularly the books and serials listed or
reviewed in pertinent publications. We also search the New Acquisitions lists of several Western European and Eastern
European libraries.
Classical Studies materials: We strive to collect comprehensively in Classical Studies. In addition to our approximately
2,000 standing orders (which includes monograph series and sets), we have Approval Plans with Harrassowitz, Casalini,
and Puvill. Furthermore, we receive notification of new titles from Blackwell, Oionos, Yankee Book Peddler, Aux
Amateurs, Harrassowitz, Casalini, and Puvill. We place orders based on our regular review of books and serials listed or
reviewed in pertinent publications. We also search the New Acquisitions lists of several Western European and Eastern
European libraries. Finally, we regularly search OP catalogs emphasizing Classical Studies against our existing collection
to purchase titles we don’t own.
Depository arrangements.
Normal selection procedures by liaison librarians based on collection policies.
Selection of European English language materials from YBP (Gobi3) slips. Consortial purchase or subscription, most
often through CIC.
Additional Comments
FYI: Most often used varies by subject; we have three Cooperative Acquisition programs, approval plans for six areas; all
of us do title/title selection but it is very important for three of us. Three people go to book fairs; five go on acquisition
trips but not every year.
“Most often used” category is very varied for UCLA between our different world areas. Some use Library of Congress
CAP primarily, while others use mainly approval plans, and others use mainly institutional partnerships and exchange
programs, and some use a combination of some or all of these methods.
Responses vary depending on the area (Asia, Africa, Latin America, etc.)
