The Hokkaido University Library has been attempting to create and provide digital data to users with print disabilities since fiscal 2014. The procedures, system, cost estimates, and future tasks of this digitizing service were identified by this study, and results obtained over the past year are reported here. The university must provide information support to students with print disabilities and must respond to requests for the digitization of documents necessary for learning as much as possible. Libraries must exchange information with other libraries to solve future tasks and to improve this digitization service. Further improvement will require the following 3 points: 1. University library staff members must understand the guidelines, 2. Information must be exchanged with other libraries that provide digitization services, and 3. Digital data for people with print disabilities must be shared among libraries.

Weeding is as important to collection maintenance as acquisition. We call this weeding the “retired book system”, and we use it routinely to maintain the library's collection. There are two advantages to weeding: maintenance of valuable up-to-date books and economical use of storage space. Effective weeding in our routine work requires the performance of two tasks: 1) simultaneous weeding and shelving by replacing old resources with newly arrived resources, and 2) exclusive arrangement of shelves classified into the three resources: valuable, depreciated, and pending. In this report, we review the system, assessing the way the library weeds depreciated resources out of the collection.

解説For decades, the cost of academic journals has been increasing, and academic libraries have had to cope with this situation. The "Big Deal" subscription model is no longer available for many libraries. In this study, the Nature Publishing Group Pay-Per-View (PPV) service: Articles on Demand (AOD) is examined from the perspective of costbenefit.This study also examined whether the AOD model fits the needs of researchers. To demonstrate the cost evaluation and usage features, the AOD access log was examined. Globally, the AOD cost is lower than that of any other type of subscription contract. AOD cannot be archived, but the AOD log indicates that recent material is accessed more frequently than older material. Old papers are not used. After the introduction of AOD, the number of used titles increase by more than two times the previous number. AOD fits the potential needs of researchers. Major usage concentrates on specific journals, while minor usage extends to a wide range of titles. The combination of a title-based contract with PPV would be an effective means of coping with the increasing costs of academic journals.(著者抄録)
