Collection Development Librarians of Academic Libraries Interest Group
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm, US/Central
Please join us for a discussion about transformative collections on Saturday, January 21, 2012, 4–5:30 p.m. in the Dallas Convention Center D173. The ALCTS Transforming Collections Task Force was formed to consider how ALCTS can best address ALA’s goal of “providing leadership in the transformation of libraries and library services in a dynamic and increasing global digital information environment.” Members of the task force will update us on their work to date, detailing some of their proposals for how ALCTS and ALA can promote transformative collections. Their report is online at http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alcts/ianda/transcol/0611report.cfm
The group will discuss collection development trends we feel are transformative, sharing our experiences and gaining new ideas we can implement in our own libraries.
