In the quickly shifting landscapes of Acquisitions and Collection Development, it can be difficult to identify and develop viable research topics that lend themselves to meaningful exploration and conclusion. There are myriad factors that affect decision-making, analysis, and budget management, and every library environment has local idiosyncrasies. Some issues stem from business models that are not fully mature, such as those that exist for demand-driven acquisition. Others arise as we wait to understand the full impact of developing technologies, such as electronic resource management systems. These two examples are by no means the only ones. In this e-forum, we'd like to hear from you and discuss which acquisitions and/or collection development issues need further research. What barriers prevent you from settling on a research topic? What research challenges, besides time, do you face?
Jill Emery is the Collection Development Librarian at Portland State University. She is Past-President of the North American Serials Interest Group, the social media coordinator for Electronic Resources & Libraries, LLC., and a past chair of the ALCTS Continuing Resources Section. She is also the current column editor of Heard on the Net for The Charleston Advisor.
Charles Hillen, current chair of the ALCTS-AS Research & Statistics Committee, is the Head of Acquisitions & Serials at Loyola Marymount University.

*What is an e-forum?*
An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free. See a list of upcoming e-forums at: http://bit.ly/upcomingeforum.
Instructions for registration are available at: http://bit.ly/eforuminfo. Once you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the email list. Participation is free and open to anyone.
