Collections Work at Non-ARL Institutions: Preliminary Results

Research output: Conference PosterPoster

Abstract

This poster will report on preliminary results of a survey exploring priorities, strategies, and challenges in libraries that do not belong to the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). This survey explores big-picture topics such as the future of collections, necessary skill sets, budgetary issues, and trends and patterns. Local issues are also of interest, including the impact and influence of institutional priorities on collections, adoption of new models of acquisition and access, investment in open access, data drive decision making, and marketing of collections. The poster will provide a different perspective on collection work writ large, identifying areas of commonality and difference.
