Collection Development Policy Workshops
About the workshop
Join us for a half-day workshop on collection development policies! Connect with library staff in your region and leave with specific ideas for revising or creating a collection development policy. This workshop is for public library directors and staff, especially those involved in developing or implementing policies.
Workshop participants will reflect and collaborate through hands-on activities and small and large group discussion. Your active participation is an essential part of the learning process.
Participants will leave the workshop able (or better able) to:
- analyze an existing collection development policy
- recommend revisions to an existing policy that reflect best practices in Texas library collection development policies
- if they don’t have a collection development policy, leave with a template for creating one
- identify the stakeholders involved in policy development and review, and map the connections between stakeholder groups in their unique community
- connect with other library workers in their region
Continuing the learning
TSLAC will also host monthly collection development policy office hours starting in May. Bring your policies and your questions!
