Blackstone Audio checkout report - Tammy

The 25 Blackstone Audio titles were discussed. It was agreed that we will keep ordering 25 titles from Blackstone Audio. However, a few of the titles may change. The totals checkouts for all the titles was 2754 in 2016. The annual cost for 2016 was $2,250. This means that the checkout cost was $.82 per checkout. It was decided that any checkouts lower than 52, could be replaced. This means that 3 out of the 25 titles could be replaced. See email, “Blackstone Audio & Zinio renewal information” sent out to the E-Content email group on 1/10/2017 to see the spreadsheet.

Action Item: Liz and Tammy will look at other titles to make recommendations for replacements. This list will be sent out to the group.

See email, “Blackstone Audio & Zinio renewal information” sent out to the E-Content email group on 1/10/2017 to see the spreadsheet, and information explaining the spreadsheet tabs. The budget for all titles is $25,000. Currently, all the renewals would be over that amount, so suggestions were made to remove the lower circulating titles.
