Demystifying Library Resources & Expenditures: A Faculty Discussion Series
The acquisition of library resources for scholarship and teaching known as “collection development,” is a complicated process that strikes a balance between access and ownership. Factors, such as price, budget, availability, and licensing, increasingly impact the libraries’ abilities to provide the most relevant and useful set of resources for our campus community. We seek creative solutions, focus on broad and deep access to information and resources, as well as open scholarship.
Join us for a series of discussions about key library collection issues that impact research and study at Vanderbilt. Please register below for the date that works best for you, and see the list of sessions and registration links for the entire series. We look forward to your participation and input. Sessions open to the Vanderbilt Community only. For questions or more information, please contact Julie Loder.
