Monday, March 17, 2014 at 4:00 PM–4:45 PM CDT
Room 203
Conference Track

2. Collection Development & Assessment


Workflow Solutions; Collection Management

Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will be able to understand the evolution of library workflows and receive recommendations on how to examine and analyze their existing workflows.

Following this session, participants will be able to understand the current workflow of library's and how a workflow solution can help enable a new, more efficient workflow.


New collection management systems are emerging with the promise of increased efficiency. Libraries and solution providers face challenges to actualize this possibility and must first understand and analyze current workflows. With an advanced model of collection management, now is the time to disrupt current processes and enable more efficient workflows.
