Merchandise Description

This 2-hour webinar was recorded on February 17, 2015.

Challenges to materials and services is a common issue for libraries. Putting parameters in place for your collection management strategy, in writing, makes it easier for your staff, your board, and your community when hard choices or questions arise. Creating policies that ensure diversity and accessibility to information for our communities, while also valuing the different opinions in that community, can be challenging for the library organization.

After this workshop participants will :

  • better understand the purpose of writing policies and their use as a public document
  • understand what "intellectual freedom" means and ensure that collection management policies include and align with these concepts
  • be able to create clear and concise procedures for handling challenges to materials and services
  • be able to create training to ensure that all staff and board members are aware of the standards for collection management and intellectual freedom
  • be more aware of tools to assist with intellectual freedom concepts and collection management
