The explosion of published and self-published titles(nearly a million new ISBNs were issued in 2012 alone) means that libraries can no longer be archives of knowledge. Understanding how to maximize the impact of the collection and engage library patrons requires a new set of skills. This talk brings real data from libraries around the country to the issues of collection development and reader's advisory.

Type:   Program

This program will be presented by David Vinjamuri, Adjunct Instructor of Marketing at New York University and Forbes contributor. This talk was originally done at PLA 2014 in Indianapolis.

Participants may view this talk in-person at our Burr Ridge facility or through videoconferencing at one of the locations listed above.

Categories: Collection Development

This event is sponsored by Reaching Across Illinois Library System.
