- Tools and resources for assessing the quality of your current collection
- Understanding the value of maintaining a dynamic, current music collection, with tips for doing it on a tight budget

Matthew Moyer is Reference Librarian in the Popular Media Department and Andrew Coulon is Integrated Library Services Librarian at Jacksonville Public Library in Florida.
