To provide a forum for the discussion and analysis of issues related to the administration of collection management and development, including but not limited to budgeting and fund allocation, organization and staffing, collection development policies, collection analysis, preservation, and library development and fundraising.
The Administration of Collection Management Interest Group consists of a membership interested in the topic led by a chair.
Established at the request of ALCTS. In 2011, the committee transitioned to an interest group structure within CMS. Discontinued February 2016.
ALA values committed and active members. Any ALA member is welcome to participate in this interest group. Members must have an interest in the work of the group and should be able to attend Annual Conferences and Midwinter Meetings to participate in the meetings and activities of the group. Work and discussion between conferences via e-mail and ALA Connect is also important.
There's no need to register or apply to join this group—just be sure to join the group's Connect space. You are encouraged to contact the current chair to let them know that you've become a member.
