The increased reliance on digital resources and fiscal constraints within higher education has forced University Presses to re-evaluate their position with the scholarly communication system. Responses include an increased focus on partnerships, new forms of publication, changing business models, and better meeting customers’ needs.<B>Design/methodology/approach</B> - The authors have reviewed publications on University Presses from the last five years and added their viewpoints on current and future trends.<B>Findings</B> - University Presses must adapt to resource scarcity and current trends in scholarly communication to remain viable.<B>Practical implications</B> - Both University Presses and academic libraries may gain insights on how to meet the needs of researchers and scholars within a changing environment.<B>Originality/value</B> - This paper summarizes and evaluates a broad spectrum of research on University Presses.

Selections were evaluated through inspection and both academic and popular film reviews. Inclusion was predicated not only on subject matter and merit but also on availability either on home media or online.<B>Findings</B> - Warhol’s many artistic creations can be introduced and evaluated using a combination of visual and auditory representation. Movies and television depicting Warhol through dramatization, primary source film, biographical documentary, and his art in the context of other artists and movements are readily available through a variety of media.<B>Originality/value</B> - The selected titles provide a comprehensive introduction to the scholarly analysis of Warhol’s art and work through a format that allows the most extensive representation of Warhol’s artistic output.

The objective of the analysis is to aid in collection development decisions, facilitate outreach to graduate students in the department, and to understand possible changes in disciplinary methodologies and research needs in the field over the last decade. <B>Design/methodology/approach</B> - Descriptive research design was used for the study. Bibliography citation data was extracted from all dissertations submitted to the Department of Spanish and Portuguese from the period 2003-2012. Statistical analysis was performed on the collected citation data and conclusions drawn from the results. <B>Findings</B> - The study demonstrates that, despite the oft-mentioned "decline of the monograph," the monograph remains very heavily used by PhD students in Spanish and Portuguese at Rutgers University, and that monographs continue to be cited at significantly higher rates and for longer periods of time than journal articles. This holds true for the humanities dissertations in Spanish literature as well as social science dissertations in Spanish linguistics. The study further finds that open access journals in Spanish literature are cited more frequently than closed access journals. <B>Practical implications</B> - The findings suggest that it is more user-responsive to allocate retrospective collections funds to filling in monographic gaps than journal coverage gaps, as journal articles are cited less frequently and for shorter periods of time while monographs are cited more frequently and for slightly longer periods of time after they are published. The findings also suggest that current monographic expenditures be maintained or augmented in order to continue serving current and future graduate student research needs in Spanish and Portuguese. Further, the large number of monograph chapters cited suggests that book chapter document delivery services could be an important addition to a library’s suite of services if it is not already provided.<B>Originality/value</B> - This paper is the first analysis of Spanish and Portuguese dissertations conducted at Rutgers University and provides important contextual information for meeting the research needs of graduate students in the department through collection development and related services. Other research has documented that dissertation citation patterns are at least partially predictive of faculty citation patterns, making the findings of this study applicable to serving faculty research and collections needs in the department, as well. The findings are relevant to collection development, access services and librarian-department liaison relationships.

It is formed by "vital elements" such as the collection – which is its basic element and the nucleus of its activity. This paper argues the evolution of the collection management as a gradual process where internal and external factors interact to transform the collection and its management activities. In this progress use the cooperation, as a necessary strategy for to assume its roles and to fit the new goals, mission and context of the library. <B>Design/methodology/approach</B> - This argumentative paper establishes a logical reasoning of the evolution process of the "collection management", with the application of Kuhn's structure of scientific revolutions.<B>Findings</B> - The library collection has had great changes, such as: its origin, composition, ownership, volume and diversity, different life-cycle from paper to digital formats, evaluation process… These changes have affected the principles and practices of collection management, in three key areas: The expansion and change of traditional activities in collection management, The enlargement and modification of agents involved. The fundamental mission of giving access to all information resources needed by actual or potential remote users. The "cooperation" becomes an essential element and the main engine of great part of the collection management. <B>Originality/value</B> - Use of Kuhn’s of scientific revolutions theory to establish the evolution of the collection management, to become in a revolution, with a new paradigm "cooperative collection management".
