Collection Development - Ludlow

Event Type: Five-Day Core Workshop
Date: 9/7/2010
Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Time: 3:00 PM
 Getting “the right material to the right person at the right time” is the greatest joy and challenge of librarianship. A useful, interesting and varied collection is a librarian’s primary tool, and developing it requires skill, knowledge, experience, intuition and creativity.

This workshop is designed for the public librarian with little or no formal training who selects and purchases books and other materials. We will discuss philosophical issues and present practical aspects of this complex responsibility, including policy making, intellectual freedom, and selecting, ordering, weeding, and maintaining a collection. Attention will be given to all formats, including DVDs, audio books, and online materials.
