CHICAGOCore will host the webinar “Reviewing New Visions for Collection Development” on January 17, 2023, at 1 p.m. CT. Shifting expectations and budget constraints have created an ever-present need to provide collections data and evidence to support purchases or rethink the collections. Open access, inside-out, shared print, and growing electronic/digital collections have changed the way libraries define what the head of collections must do to support the needs of the library. There are several libraries that have crafted position descriptions with job titles like "collection strategist" or "collection analyst" to replace or supplement the head of collections position. This presentation analyzes these strategy-based position descriptions to gain a deeper understanding of how libraries would like to shape their collections in the future.
