Basic Library Techniques: Collection Development and Maintenance (PART 2: IN PERSON CLASS)

Welcome to the Basic Library Techniques (BLT) session in Collection Development and Maintenance. BLTs are two sessions: a 3 to 4-week self-paced online training with work and reflection, plus one in-person class. The online class must be completed before attending an in-person session. Participants must complete both sessions to earn their certificate of completion.

NOTE: Do NOT register for an in-person session unless you have received confirmation for your online class registration.

Course outcomes:

  • Make use of the collection management cycle, including resources appropriate for each step, in order to create a quality library collection.
  • Apply best practices to evaluate and develop a library collection development policy in order to articulate a shared understanding of how your collection will meet user needs.
  • Demonstrate appropriate responses to common challenges to library materials in order to ensure intellectual freedom for your patrons.
  • Recognize, describe, and apply new trends in collection development in order to meet the changing needs of your community.

Please remember that all work from the online modules must be completed before attendance. All online assignments labeled to be discussed and reviewed in class will be reviewed. There will be a lunch break during class, so a non-heated lunch is recommended for the day of the class.
