Tabacaru, Simona individual record
Associate Professor

I have an interest in practical and creative approaches to collection management and assessment (e.g., approval plans, demand driven acquisitions, assessment of serials and "big deals", electronic resources management systems). I am particularly interested in implementing a sustainable approach to collection assessment.
