About this Section

Our community addresses and improves all aspects of acquisitions, cataloging, collections, continuing resources, metadata, preservation, reformatting, and technical services in all types of libraries. Examples of our work include, but are not limited to:

  • Sharing best practices and knowledge in work areas that support collections and discovery;
  • Identifying best practices for equity, diversity, and inclusion in the development and description of collections;
  • Creation and input on standards and best practices for selection, acquisition, description, access, and preservation of information resources;
  • Preservation of both print, media, and digital resources.
