Books, E-ink and Databases, Oh my! Collection Development in the 21st Century

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 8:30am – 4:30pm
Presenters: Laura Pearle, Buffy Hamilton, Wendy Stephens, Angela Carstensen, Frances Harris

In this workshop, the presenters will talk about best practices in purchasing resources and making them available to the community. They will also help participants create strategies for dealing with 20th-century educators. This all day preconference will encompass three themes: flipping the collection/renovating the space, collection development and future planning. Participants will leave with a personalized toolkit that will enable them to meet these challenges and to become change agents in their local library communities.
