2. Collection Development & Assessment

While libraries have been steadily transitioning collections to electronic format, the sudden shift to hybrid environments has dramatically accelerated the demand for remote access to content. To ensure ongoing support of the vast and varied needs of their users, libraries need electronic resources, such as books, periodicals, music scores and more.

In this session, you’ll hear from two librarians who used title matching to grow their electronic collections. Courtney Fuson from Belmont University who will share how a weeding project at their library turned into a greater effort to add e-content across various subjects. Then, you’ll hear from Tracy Gilmore, who needed an affordable way to provide the appropriate access to meet the evolving demands of students at California State University (CSU) Long Beach.
