Materials Selection: Invitation to the Public for Suggestions for Purchase


More Options: Make a Folding Card

Storyboard Description

Create a new, larger-scale way to invite patron recommendations, and launch a publicity campaign to promote it. Keep in mind that this would have to be within Collection Development Policy guidelines and budget restrictions. Additionally, continue with current selection practices. Re-analyze Coll. HQ for cost effectiveness. (This would be the ‘high-end’ option, as it would be most expensive and far-reaching.)
