#NAGcd12: Twelfth Collection Development Seminar for Academic Librarians
May 15 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm£192.00 – £252
Twelfth NAG Collection Development Seminar for Academic Librarians #NAGcd12
“Transition – problems, solutions, conclusions.”
To ensure we are building our collections effectively, we must keep acquisitions supply chains running smoothly. Uncertainty about the future, information technology, sustainability, managing budgets, and having the right skills to inform our decision making, all form part of how we select and acquire material. We strive to ensure value for money and embed organisational objectives in our planning.
However in an environment where financial resources are limited, and our expenditure comes under increasing scrutiny, we must constantly review our practices and resources, and regularly consider revising or even replacing them completely. Change requires transition, such as migrating to a new library management system; working under a new management structure; adapting to a reduced staff or resources budget; moving or withdrawing large parts of our collections; or changing our collections and acquisitions policies.
NAG’s 12th edition of the highly successful Collection Development seminar takes place at the Friends House, 173-177 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BJ, London on Friday 15th May 2020.
The day will include 30 minute papers from a range of academic libraries across the UK plus an interactive workshop session with lunch and refreshments provided. Full speaker and programme information coming soon. Exact timings to be confirmed but will be within 09:30-17:00 if you wish to plan travel.
Running alongside #NAGcd12 will be a Public Libraries Forum event on the same day with the opportunity for cross sector networking over lunch. To continue the networking after the formal part of the day is over, there will be a drinks evening to follow at The Parcel Yard.
