Event description
Dreaming of supercharging your collection development powers?

About this Event

You’ve got your collections basics down. You know how to get great books that your customers can’t wait to read, and you weed like a mother. But have you ever wondered how to take your library collection to the next level? Join YRL staff for a no-holds-barred look at collection development in this roundtable workshop and discussion.

Conveniently scheduled following the spring YRL PLC meeting, this workshop will cover:

- Linking collection development to your community needs and Plan of Service

- Collection Development Policies

- Data driven collection development and collection analysis

- Automating your weeding schedules with data and weeding plans and procedures

- Physical layout and display of your collection

Participants will have an opportunity to practice with Simply Reports using their own collection data, and they will leave with an action plan for updating their collection in the areas that matter most to your library and to your community

Coffee, tea, water and light snacks will be served.
