Academic libraries building their collections with core titles from Resources for College Libraries™ (RCL) can stretch their collection budget further, making smarter acquisition and deselection decisions. Using the enhanced Recommendations and Deselection reports in Intota™ Assessment, libraries can simply compare by subject area their collection to RCL core titles, quickly determine a match to their current holdings, and easily identify alternative formats in their collection or in market.
RCL’s recommendations are specific to a title at the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) level. This 13-digit number establishes a unique identifier for every edition published, regardless of format (hardcover, paper, audio, “e,” etc.) Until now, the process of matching all formats of a core title to a library’s current holdings was manual and time consuming.
