ALCTS webinar: Intro to Managing Serials w/ Net Cost per Paid Use

Date: Wednesday, February 26, 2020

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

Description: This webinar will introduce a new metric for evaluating the
cost effectiveness of Serials: Net Cost Per Paid Use (NCPPU). NCPPU goes
beyond the standard Cost Per Use calculation to exclude free content (OA
and back catalog), incorporate ILL costs, and value citation and authorship.

Learning outcomes:

At the end of the webinar, attendees will:


   understand what net cost per paid use (NCPPU) is

   understand the pros and cons of using NCPPU instead of the more common
   Cost Per Use for managing serials

   be able to calculate NCPPU for their institution

Who should attend?

Academic librarians looking to improve the evaluation of their serials,
either with an eye to saving money (by unsubscribing from journals which
aren't cost effective) or regaining control of their budgets.
