This presentation will begin with a refresh of the initial stages of a multi-year project which aims to strengthen individual libraries' collections as well as regional collections through the use of resource sharing data. With rich resource sharing data (such as the number of times a title was requested within IDS Project, regional holdings, and more) staff in acquisitions and resource sharing can collaborate to build strong, diverse collections without even having to learn ILLiad. Our presentation will also elaborate on the second phase of this project, in which we have focused our work on real-time coordinated collection development, taking resource sharing data and actively moving ILLiad requests based on libraries' willingness to buy and send titles related to curricular strengths. We will share how we worked with developers to move ILLiad requests in real-time, planned physical and ILLiad workflows, and tested buying and shipping requested physical items to borrowing libraries using two common academic library vendors. We will also discuss our progress on including regional libraries outside of the IDS Project. Join us to find out how your library could participate. Let's work together to identify where the program could go next as we improve this program to best serve all of our patrons.
