Saturday Ignite Session: Let the Wild Rumpus Start: Adventures Beyond the Library Echo Chamber Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

What do Burning Man, SXSW Interactive, and airplanes have to do with libraries? On the surface nothing obvious, but when we let our librar* flag wave loud and proud we discover these are ripe spaces to engage with communities unaccustomed to the wonders of contemporary libraries. Sharing eclectic professional development opportunities with librarian comrades is exhilarating and a crucial action to keep this profession from expiring of stale nostalgia and reluctance to adaptive change. This is an invitation to be an exploratory librarian and embark on new adventures beyond the library silos together!

Collection Development Issues for the Practitioner Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Hilton San Francisco Union Square
Union Square 19 & 20
Description :

Please join the ALCTS Collection Development Issues for Practitioners Interest Group for a facilitated discussion at the 2015 ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco! Our discussion will focus on three major areas based on librarians’ suggestions:

1. With new library services evolving, librarians are asked to take on new responsibilities in areas such as scholarly communications, data services and digital humanities. However, traditional duties such as collection development are not going away. How do we balance our responsibilities of the new and traditional without sacrificing the quality of our work? How does your library meet this challenge? How do you keep your faculty relationships strong in the face of these new areas?

2. Discovery services have been adopted by libraries of all types. Based on research, we have observed changes in usage patterns as a result of the implementation of discovery services. What are the implications and impact of discovery services on library collection development? How does a discovery platform influence decisions for product and vendor choices? What is the impact on print collections and its management?

3. Libraries invest a lot of time and money to acquire new resources to meet users’ information needs. But how do users know we have something new for them? What are the strategies to market new resources to library users? Do you add new resources to LibGuides? What are the deciding factors to consider on whether to add new titles to LibGuides?
