Guide to review of library collections : preservation, storage, and withdrawal by Dennis K Lambert( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a thorough introduction to the topic for libraries of all types and sizes wishing to plan and formulate reviews of materials in their general collections, regardless of format. This edition addresses the presence of electronic resources in libraries and brings the subject up-to-date for all formats, recognizing that print collections will continue to grow and that issues surrounding the preservation of electronic resources have not been resolved. This Guide is particularly relevant to libraries of all types facing the perennial issues of rapid collection growth, limited space to house collections (with no building expansion on the horizon), and deterioration of collections. All libraries also face the issues of obsolete materials, limited budgets, changing user populations and needs, and new institutional programs, and will find the Guide helpful in dealing with those problems. A major theme is the value of systematic planning in conducting reviews of materials. Reviews that have set goals, identified appropriate participants, identified expected outcomes, and budgeted for expenses will likely be more successful and productive than reviews that lack these elements. Structured in outline form, the Guide provides an introduction to the topic, a review of planning considerations, followed by a complete overview of reviews for preservation, storage, or withdrawal

Guide to library user needs assessment for integrated information resource management and collection development by Dora Biblarz( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New technologies are making information more fluid, but what does this mean for information providers? Without a doubt, it means that traditional roles are evolving. The task of providing information now demands expertise in exploiting new technologies and trawling their uncharted ebbs and flows of information." "The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association, offers a host of well-integrated and forward-looking services to help you navigate through these changes. It is a leader in the development of principles, standards, and best practices for creating, collecting, organizing, delivering, and preserving information resources in all forms. It offers educational, research, and professional service opportunities. And it is committed to quality information, universal access, collaboration, and lifelong learning."--Jacket
