Vendor Selection at Phoenix Public Library, AZ
Vendor Selection takes place when a library chooses to outsource the selection process to suppliers. Librarians who use this technique create profiles listing the materials required at their library which are then sent to the vendor. Using the profiles, vendor selectors can ensure that the library receives the right quantities of current and forthcoming items
which meet those criteria and are within the library’s budget.
The adoption of collectionHQ has helped this library to:
- Streamline the selection process
- Equip the library catalog with current and forthcoming titles
- Avoid wasteful purchases
- Enable selection automation with ESP - Evidence-based Selection Planning
