An Infopeople online course, November 6, 2102 to December 10, 2012
Formats for reference resources are evolving and library staff and user expectations are evolving along with them. Are you ready to rethink the purpose and development of your library's reference collection? Rethinking your collection enables you to suggest changes to reference collection development that better reflect the realities of today’s demand and usage. You’ll be able to make decisions about purchases and policies that help build a reference collection for the future.
In this popular course, you will explore:
- How reference resources are changing
- Methods for measuring usage of reference resources
- Weeding guidelines
- Collection decisions that meet staff and user needs
- Ways to promote use of reference materials
Fee: $75 for those in the California library community and Infopeople Partners, $150 for all others.
