Collection Development is at the heart of what a library is: a source of information, entertainment, leisure reading, viewing, listening and so much more. Attend this Uplift class to understand the context for collection development while we learn about the practical issues, the best procedures, and the everyday work that constitutes CD—both the science and the art of it! This workshop will include small group projects, discussion, opportunities for questions and special concerns as well as lots of practical, down-to-earth ideas to help you successfully anticipate what your uses might want next whether it is book, a motion picture, an electronic resource and other format. Topics include:
- The steps in the collection development cycle
- The selection process & tools and the good, the bad and the ugly regarding gifts
- The changing marketplace for all formats
- The weeding process—benefits, practical considerations, results, and policies
- Collection assessment—what you have, what you need, what needs changing, what is perfect!
