Ohai! That last blog post was all in the editorial plural. But we (oops again!) intend that this blog carry the individual voices of its authors. In future, we will attempt to carry this blog through without use of “we.”
Thus, if you are interested in blogging about library collection issues, just let us, um, me know. Steven Harris: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to Collection Connection: The Library Collection Management Blog. The name of the blog is Collection Connection, but our banner uses a typographic trick with an equal sign to suggest that collections are connections. As libraries move into new and uncertain territory, it becomes more important than ever that librarians make real and significant connections with library users and that the collections on our shelves (physical or virtual) serve tangible user needs.
The purpose of the blog is to present new ideas about library collections and to provide a forum to discuss changes in the practice of collection management and development. We look forward to exploring a wide range of collection issues with you.
Collection Connection is sponsored by the Collection Management and Development Section of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association.
