Article about Collection Development

Yesterday I gave a presentation about the future of acquisitions that discussed the increasing reliance on e-books and the decrease of print, as well as patron-driven acquisitions.  This is an interesting article about collection development, weeding and the re-purposing of space that I wish I had read BEFORE my presentation!

About Ellie Kohler

I'm the Access and Learning Services Librarian at Rockhurst University, and was a founding member of the ILL Special Interest Group. My specialties include interlibrary loan, instruction, reference, circulation, reserves, and wrangling 40 (or so) student assistants. I continue to defy the librarian stereotype by keeping a cat-free household.
