Cooperative Collection Development: We Really Mean It This Time
Saturday, June 26, 4-5:30pm
In the face of declining budgets, cooperative collection development has become vital to our survival. Many libraries have implemented “radical” collaborative approaches to building collections, facilitating resource sharing, and developing shared collections policies and procedures. Libraries are redefining themselves as multi-institutional entities, rather than stand-alone organizations. This program will focus on the innovative ways libraries are conducting successful cooperative collection development programs and will outline potential future(s) for collaborative collections work.
