Engaging Library Users in Collection Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Collection development is often an exercise in anticipating user interests, but it can also be an active collaboration between librarians and library users through consultation, special projects, or a patron driven acquisitions process. The speakers in this session will present case studies demonstrating different ways librarians can work directly with library users to shape collections. Anne Trenholme will describe how the Ingalls Library at the Cleveland Museum of Art successfully petitioned for grant funding for working with new curatorial staff to ensure that the library supports their research interests. Caroline Dechert will present on how the library and curatorial staff work together to grow the artist files collection in the Bartlett Library at the Museum of International Folk Art. Deborah K. Ultan will explain how the zine collection at the Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library at the University of Minnesota offers a variety of opportunities for user engagement with the library. John Burns will detail his methods for working with faculty in the art department to collaborate on building the monographs collection in the Dixie State University Library. Expanding on the idea of working with faculty in a department, Laurel Bliss will explain how she worked with a new faculty member at San Diego State University to focus on developing the library’s collection of materials on a specific subject, in this case jewelry and metalworking. Finally, Jennifer H. Krivickas will outline how patron driven acquisitions is part of collaborative collection development in the Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning Library at the University of Cincinnati.
