As budgets shrink, libraries must find ways to work more efficiently and do more with less. One critical area to scrutinize is materials selection and collection development. Find out how the Westerville Public Library went through the process of redefining their selection philosophy and redesigning all aspects of materials selection and collection development: collection standards, staffing, and practical tools that aid the process. The Westerville story is a Best Practice model. Discover what you can adopt and adapt for your library.

This workshop is co-sponsored by CAMLS and NOLA.
