Acquisitions 101: An Unconference

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us for the first ever Acquisitions Unconference! This session will bring together colleagues that practice the art and science, trials and tribulations, practices and procedures of library acquisitions. We hope to discuss all things acquisitions, to facilitate open sharing of experiences and best practices and to provide open discussion with acquisitions colleagues regarding challenges and successes. This will be a very open session with audience discussion and participation expected and encouraged. Format will include breakout sessions for smaller, more focused discussion groups. These breakout discussion groups will give participants a chance to connect with colleagues from similar libraries or selecting similar collections.
