Collection directions and pandemic effects

Wie:

Lorcan Dempsey (OCLC)

Waar:

Loungebar

Wanneer:

donderdag 14/10 11:30 - 12:00

The collection has been core to the library identity and purpose, and has anchored its services. However, our view of collections has actually changed significantly in recent years and these changes have been accelerated by the pandemic.

This presentation will consider how the library collection now has no boundaries, how libraries support scholarly creation and sharing, and how collections are considered collectively. We are also considering how well collections recognize the experience and memories of all the communities the library serves. The presentation will discuss such recent concepts as the collective collection, the facilitated collection and the inside out collection.
