Revolutionizing collection development
ESP — Evidence-based Selection Planning* — brings the art of Baker & Taylor’s collection development expertise together with the science of collectionHQ’s data analytics, to create a decision support system integrated with Title Source 360 to equip your library with the information to select the right titles and quantities, for the right locations.
Art & Science
Some consider art and science to be opposing forces, but ESP proves that the melding of the two disciplines creates a powerful, predictive tool which encapsulates not only the hard evidence of data analytics, but the intuition and experience of human knowledge. The power of ESP has the capability to streamline up to 80% of items in collections and reduce time spent throughout the selection process.
