Learn how to apply GIST to streamline local and cooperative acquisitions, collection development and evaluation, discovery, gift, interlibrary loan, and weeding workflows. Want to transform your acquisitions, collection development and interlibrary loan operations, but not sure how to start? Learn how to develop strategies for implementing the Getting it System Toolkit - a tool designed to reshape your library’s acquisition and collection development workflows. GIST for ILLiad was released in 2009 and allows acquisitions and interlibrary loan to work together, while also encouraging end-users to discover full-text from Google, Hathi, and other providers. In addition, in 2010, the GIST Gift and Deselection Manager was released - a tool for streamlining gift processing and batching collection evaluation workflows. Lastly, the GIST Acquisitions Manager was released in 2012 and is designed to work with various services and systems such as GOBI, ILLiad, OCLC, CCC Get It Now, Amazon, and many more. The session will describe how to implement these tools and bring together stakeholders from your library (as well as from across multiple libraries) with customized workflows that save staff time, increases collection diversity and value, and easily coordinates collection development.
