2010 Annual Conference Programs
Negotiating the Downturn: Collection Development for Tough Times
Sunday, June 27, 1:30–3:30pm
This program presents veteran managers of large academic library collections who will discuss studied and necessary responses to budget decreases, staff reductions or other operational pressures caused by "the downturn." They will describe how they adjusted allocations and work flow, exploited consortial resources, and deployed new technologies to turn retrenchment into opportunity–despite difficult economic times.
