Managing collections can be challenging for even the most experienced professional, so it’s not surprising that newly minted collections managers often feel overwhelmed. This session is geared toward librarians who are new to collections management and provides perspectives from both a seasoned collections management librarian and a relative newcomer to the field. By sharing examples from their individual institutions, the presenters will discuss first-year expectations, valuable management resources, approaches to managing collections, relationship-building with stakeholders, resource challenges, change management, financial constraints, collaborative collection development, and more. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions, including topics of interest to them such as budgeting, licensing, cancellation projects, and weeding.
