Feedback form is now closed.
An Acquisitions Manager, Liaison Librarian, and Director of Resource Services began their tenure braving the “wild west” of a faculty-driven collection using a twenty-eight year old collection development policy to complete a comprehensive, and overdue, review of a long-neglected collection. Learn how American academic library acquisitions have shifted from exclusively faculty-driven to librarian-driven collections with the rare exception of Kent Library at Southeast Missouri State University. Discover how a faculty-driven collection impacts policy, library engagement, and collection review. As we discuss the struggles and benefits of a faculty-driven collection, you will gain insights into how elements of this dynamic may be implemented in, and benefit, your library.
