This is an opportunity to present and discuss your research. Both completed research and research in progress will be considered. All researchers, including collection practitioners from all types of libraries, library school faculty and students, and other interested individuals, are encouraged to submit a proposal.

The Committee will use a blind review process to select two projects. The selected researchers are required to present their papers in person at the forum. Each researcher should plan for a 20 minute presentation, with a 10 minute open discussion following each presentation.

Criteria for selection:

  • Significance of the study for improving collection management and development practices

  • Potential for research to fill a gap in collections scholarship or to build on previous studies

  • Quality and creativity of the methodology

  • Previously published research or research accepted for publication prior to December 13, 2016, will not be accepted.

Application:

The submission must consist of no more than two pages. On the first page, please list your name(s), title(s), institutional affiliation(s), and contact information (including your mailing address, telephone number, fax number, and email address). The second page should be a one-page proposal, and it should NOT show your name or any personal information. Instead, it must include only:

  • The title of your project

  • A clear statement of the research problem

  • A description of the research methodology used

  • Results of the project, if any

The deadline for proposals is December 18, 2017.

Notification of acceptance will be made by February 28, 2018.  

ALCTS, in its bylaws, claims the right of first refusal for publication of any work emanating from an ALCTS body or program.

Please send submissions by email to:

Jennifer Bazeley, Co-Chair, CMS Publications Committee

Tony Greiner will discuss a data-driven weeding project in which he developed a list of common characteristics of uncirculated materials. This work led to recommendations for identifying and avoiding purchasing books that are unlikely to ever be used. Tony is Reference and Instruction librarian at Portland Community College in Oregon. While his professional interest is in collection use, his best stories are about driving the hippo truck when he worked for the circus.

Forrest Link and Bethany Sewell are currently investigating the feasibility of using short-term loans of ebooks as an alternative to traditional interlibrary loan. They will present their findings at the forum. Bethany is the Access Services and Reference Librarian at The College of New Jersey where she oversees the functions of Circulation, Reserves, and Interlibrary Loan. Prior to coming to The College of New Jersey, Bethany was the Access Services Librarian at the University of Denver. Bethany received her MLS with a specialization in Art Librarianship from Indiana University, Bloomington in 2006. Forrest is the Acquisitions and World Languages & Cultures Librarian at the College of New Jersey. He received his MLS from Rutgers University-New Brunswick.

Fifth Annual Collection Management & Research Forum

The Publications Committee of the Collection Management Section of ALCTS is sponsoring the Fifth Annual Collection Management & Development Research Forum (formerly known as the Emerging Research in Collection Management & Development Forum) at the 2014 American Library Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas. This year’s featured speakers are:

Denise Weldon-Siviy, Collections Associate, and Amy Ward, Director of Technical Services, from Gettysburg College. Siviy and Ward will discuss their work to develop a sustainable, permanent assessment process to maintain shelf capacity equilibrium without an adverse effect on librarian time management. They endeavored to develop a process that would result in a net-zero growth scenario while producing a higher-quality collection.

Cheri Duncan, Director, Acquisitions & Collecti
ons, from James Madison University. Duncan will discuss a project she undertook with Genya O’Gara, Director, Collections, to develop a holistic approach to collection development and assessment. Their ultimate goal is to develop a flexible assessment rubric that will include a suite of tools for more consistently evaluating and better expressing a holistic value of their collections.

The speakers will briefly present their work and then welcome questions and ideas from attendees.

The forum will be held in the Las Vegas Convention Center, N237, on Sunday, June 29, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
