Collection Development Issues for the Practitioner Interest Group

Saturday, January 31, 2015
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Central

Please come and join the ALCTS Collection Development Issues for Practitioners Interest Group for a facilitated discussion at Midwinter! Together, we will explore the following four topics:

1. What are your experiences with Patron Driven Acquisition and how do you make it work?

2. Have you explored or have experience building collections collaboratively with other universities and institutions, such as determining what to purchase or withdraw? What would be the potential benefits or hindrances of collaborative collection building?

3. For collection assessment, what type of data or factors would you like to see for making collection decisions, and what would be useful for justifying your collection spending and demonstrating the impact of the collection?

4. How do you connect with library users, such as faculty and students, to get their input for collection development? At the same time, how do you manage user expectations?

Time: Saturday, January 31 from 1:00 -2:30 PM
Location: McCormick Place West W194a
