Collection Development at the Crossroads: The Intersection of Changing Technologies and Evolving Roles
POSTER SESSION PROGRAM
How can staff best collaborate to support a collection development program encompassing books and serials in a variety of formats, especially when those formats are evolving continuously? In order to explore the intersection of changing technologies and existing job responsibilities, librarians at Gustavus Adolphus College facilitated parallel workflow analyses of collection development and electronic resources management tasks. These efforts emphasize responding proactively to changing technologies and forging new collaborative relationships. This poster session tracks the project and presents new tools to inform collection development decisions. The session also highlights opportunities for collaboration among collection management and electronic resources staff.
