What is Keeping You Up at Night? A Discussion of Current Hot Topics in Collection Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This interactive lunch discussion will ask each participant to list the top 3 issues in collection development that keep them up at night. The issues can be strategic and/or local. The ARL “ISSUE BRIEF on 21st-Century Collections,” released in May 2012, listed content, infrastructure, publishing and the way scholars communicate as key strategic issues in 21st century collection development. How closely do these issues mirror what is taking place where you are? We will explore why these nocturnal issues are troublesome, what we plan to do about it and how we propose to manage it. Participants will have an opportunity to comment and provide suggestions to each other. Responses will be collected and shared through Against the Grain.
