Collection Development Librarians of Academic Libraries Interest Group

Saturday, June 23, 2012
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

US/Pacific (-7)

Please join us for a discussion about "Transforming Collections," as we continue a discussion begun at Midwinter by exploring how different libraries and consortia are dealing with the transformation of our collections. Our distinguished panelists will share their experience and perspective on such trends such as patron-driven acquisitions, E-book approval plans, collaborative collection development, and the development of collaborative, curated, subject collections. Following the presentations, we will have a Q&A session and share our own experiences, gaining new ideas we can implement in our own Libraries.


Keith Powell, Head of Acquisitions, University of California, Irvine

Jill Emery, Collection Development Librarian, Portland State University

Jennifer Younger, Executive Director, Catholic Research Resources Alliance and Edward H. Arnold Director of Hesburgh Libraries Emerita, University of Notre Dame
