Collection Development Strategies for Selective Depository Libraries
Ann Marie Sanders

This is a hands-on opportunity to consider various approaches to collection development in an increasingly electronic depository library program. Participants should bring their library's FDLP internal password, a *printed* copy of their library's current selection profile, their collection development policy, and any tools used within their institution in making collection development decisions. A flash drive is optional, but some participants find it helpful.
