ALCTS presents “Collection Development Strategies in an Evolving Marketplace: an ALCTS Midwinter Symposium,” a presentation of the ALCTS President’s Program Committee and organized by Michael Levine-Clark.  Join your colleagues from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, January 30, 2015 at the American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter Meeting in Chicago.

This symposium explores strategies for selecting, acquiring and budgeting for new materials such as streaming media, unbundled content, and institutional open access models. Presenters  address front line issues such as how to maximize resources to support user needs, how to manage unknown elements of these new models and how to market and build the library’s profile. The speakers will explore long term effects on our collections and how traditional collection development may be changing.

Attendees will come away from this symposium with a greater understanding of how to implement new content and acquisition programs in their own libraries from these presentations:

A presentation based on the article "Collection Directions: The Evolution of Library Collections and Collecting." (portal: Libraries and the Academy 14, no. 3 (2014): 393-423)

  • By one of its authors to be confirmed

Demand-Driven Acquisition of Monographs from several perspectives

  • Steve Bosch, Kathi Fountain, Michael Levine-Clark

Unbundling journals by accessing articles on demand

  • Rick Anderson, Christina Mune, Steve Oberg

New forms of content: What aren’t we doing (or are just starting) that should be part of CD?

  • Speaker not confirmed as of release

Panel Discussion: What is the future of collection development? Where do we go from here?

  • Moderated by Michael Levine-Clark

Space is limited so registration early online through the ALA Midwinter website.  Look for “Ticketed Events” and then the ALCTS Symposium.  Registration fees are $219 for ALCTS members (use special code ALCTS2015), $269 for ALA members, and just $99 for students and retired members.  For more information or questions, contact Julie Reese, jreese@ala.org.

6. Motion to Accept Restricted Gift (10 mins)

Action: Motion to accept a restricted gift for the round table for the purposes of advocacy.

Item Facilitator: Dale McNeill

Vote: Yes 

Supporting Information: This item is for a motion to accept a restricted gift to the GLBTRT operating fund of $500 from  Patricia Glass-Schuman for the purpose of advocacy.
We received this gift in February and Dale reported on it. Dale worked with ALA staff at the time, as restricted gifts are not common to the Round Table. However, he has recently learned from ALA Development that the Board does need to take action to accept any restricted gifts. 

 

7. Annual Conference Schedule (15 mins)

Action: Discussion and “finalize” information for 2015 Annual schedule of events and meetings for preliminary schedule database.

Item Facilitator: Roland Hansen

Vote: No

Supporting Information: Here is what we had in Las Vegas, 2014:

Saturday Exec Bd Mtg, 830am-1130am

Saturday,  Program, 3pm-530pm

Sunday,  Membership Meeting, 1015-1115am

Sunday,  Social, 6-8pm

Monday,  Stonewall Event, 1030am-2pm                  

Just using the index for the Program Book, I didn’t see any time slots for meetings of any committees, so am assuming there aren’t any. The Membership Meeting will have to be moved from Sunday since I don’t  think we should have it on Pride Sunday;  possibly Monday morning, or possibly Saturday 1-2pm right before Program.  We also need to include the RBMS Co-sponsored program, and include the pre-conference.  For each scheduled event/meeting/whatever, the name of the Chair, Job title, and Institutional affiliation is now required.  The Midwinter time choices were really limited, but there is an option to choose OTHER, which allows any times to be entered.  I’m assuming though that these choices may come under some scrutiny at ALA if “odd times” are chosen, like 1015am, which will not be chosen.
