Collections Development SIG

Date: Wednesday, December 8*
Time: 1pm-2pm
Location: online via Zoom
Facilitator: Sarah Northshield, Pearl River Library
*In case of inclement weather or other cause for cancellation, the alternative date will be December 9 at 10am.

The Collections Development group will meet to discuss matters related to acquisition. This is the place to bring your questions and stories about topics such as:

  •   weeding outdated titles, weeding with limited staff
  •   making choices on a small budget
  •   anti-racist collection development

The exact agenda will be decided upon by attendees. Library workers from all types: academic, public, school, and archives, are all welcome to share their experiences with colleagues.

The intended audience for this meeting is library workers in the Southeastern NY Library Resources Council service area. (The eight-county area of Columbia, Greene, Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan, Putnam and Rockland, NY.) All in this region are considered members or affiliate members. If you are from outside this region, you are welcome to join us. We appreciate the perspective that you might bring to our region, and hope that you understand that our conversation's focus may be on the Hudson Valley as we think globally and act locally.
