Collection Development in a Consortium
Thursday, April 1st, 2010
12:30 – 3:30 p.m.
MCPL’s Wausau Room
300 First St., Wausau, WI.
Jane Pearlmutter, Associate Director of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School for Libraries and Information Studies, will join us to address issues related to collection management in a consortium setting. How do you balance your collection budgets? How much weight should be given to demand vs. selection? Can expensive duplication be minimized? How do you meet the needs of your own community while still being a responsible member of a consortium? We'll address these questions and many more during this free WVLS workshop.
This workshop will follow the regular V-CAT meeting which is scheduled from 9:30-11:30 a.m. on April 1st. From 11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m., everyone is invited to attend the “IT Lunch” and talk technology with WVLS Information Technology Director, Josh Klingbeil. Advance reservations for box lunches (cost=$7.00, with checks made payable to WVLS) will be accepted until Tuesday, March 30th.
Please RSVP by Tuesday, March 30th to Beth Sillars at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 715-261-7255. If you have any questions or need special accommodations, please contact Beth.
