This is a “Basics” workshop that will introduce participants to the responsibilities that make up collection development and management. Effective collection development and management is a collaborative process, therefore the workshop will combine interactive presentations with group activities.
Topics to be addressed include:
- Understanding collection development and management as a practice and an art
- Policy, planning, and fiscal management
- Selection: tools, techniques, criteria, and the selector’s knowledge base
- Managing collections: decisions about withdrawals, transfers, journal cancellation, preservation
- Marketing, outreach, community assessment, and liaison activities
- Collection assessment and evaluation
- Cooperative collection development and management
The impact of automation and electronic content on the practice of collection development will be woven through the workshop.
