Each year, the Collection Management Interest Group sponsors opportunities for librarians to learn with each other in conference programs, pre-confrences, and annual workshops. Program include lectures, panel sessions, discussions, and informal opportunities for networking. Listed below are summaries and links to presentation notes and slideshows.
CMIG co-hosted a workshop with the Technical, Electronic, and Digital Services Interest Group (TEDSIG) on Friday, June 16th at the State Library of Ohio. The workshop focused on how work in technical services can assist and inform collection managers, and vice-versa. For example, how can the statistics kept in acquisitions and electronic resources assist collection managers in retention and cancellation decisions? How can technical services and collection managers assist each other in examining open access materials, streaming video services, and so on?
