Materials Selection: Invitation to the Public for Suggestions for Purchase
By staabbot, Updated
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.)
RESOURCE ACCESS POLICY MISSION: To improve the quality of life for all citizens by providing courteous, knowledgeable and efficient service and access to a broad diversity of information through resources and programs.
The Collection Dept. Manager and selectors meet annually for an informal review.
We need to update our collection development policy.
If the manager and selectors recommend updates, a taskforce is formed to review their recommendations.
Suggestion: Campaign to Increase Patron Suggestions for Purchase (highlight request form more prominently, etc.).
We want to hear from you about what you want.
