Collection Development: The New Balancing Act

New technologies have changed the face of collection development in all types of libraries. What is the best way to balance print materials with downloadable music and book files? How do we deal with rapidly changing formats and how do we know when to downsize or eliminate parts of the collection? This workshop will focus on these and other collection development issues that affect libraries in the Internet Age. Workshop objectives include:
  • Understand the issues involved in integrating electronic media with physical materials
  • Be familiar with techniques like floating collections and using marketing segments to develop collections
  • Be familiar with several kinds of downloadable media, including e-films, streaming media and e-books
  • Be familiar with methods of demographic and psychographic evaluation
