On-DemandeForum
In a context of reduced budgets, more and more libraries find themselves examining existing policies and procedures for the acceptance, evaluation, and processing of in-kind materials donations. A number of factors and considerations necessarily accompany any such examination, particularly if changes to existing policies, procedures, and workflows are proposed. This e-forum will cover topics including the criteria for accepting materials, costs of donations, formats, managing donor relations, disposing of unwanted materials, Friends groups, and the future of in-kind donations.
This hour-long session gives an overview of key concepts behind demand-driven acquisition, why and how to implement, and benefits to the library and the campus community. Will also give an understanding of the implications for the library collection. An ALCTS webinar--one of two parts.
