Webinar - collection development

ALCTS Webinar:

“You want me to select for WHAT?: Getting started in a new area”

Wednesday, December 2, 2009 at 2:00 pm Eastern time (1:00 pm Central; noon Mountain; 11 am Pacific Time)

Librarians are often assigned collection development responsibilities in subject areas with which they are unfamiliar. This webinar will help librarians in public, academic, and special library settings cope with new subjects, assess local needs, and identify major publishers. Attendees will learn strategies, techniques, and resources for dealing with new or changed responsibilities for selection and collection development.

The webinar will be presented by Virginia Kay (Ginger) Williams, Acquisitions Librarian at Wichita State University where she is responsible for selecting in the widely diverse areas of law and engineering.
