Textbooks, Dewey and Fiction, Oh my! On Managing and Organizing a Curriculum Library’s Collection.

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
At the Gary Strong Curriculum Center (a library dedicated to Education majors that houses State if Idaho adopted curriculum as well as a wide variety of books one might encounter in a school library), we strive to provide the most relevant and diverse materials for students, staff, faculty, and community members.  Managing and organizing a small curriculum library takes a lot of flexibility, creativity, ingenuity, and muscle (textbooks are heavy!).  Learn what it takes to plan, organize, and implement the yearly accessioning and purging of 1,000’s of curriculum items while maintaining an exceptional collection of fiction and nonfiction materials and staying sane doing it (just kidding!).

Attendees will leave with tips and techniques for managing the flow of new and old materials while working with limited staff, space, and time, as well as strategies for enhancing permanent collections with a limited budget.
Provide information on collection development with a continually rotating section, managing a relevant fiction and nonfiction section, and making the most out of a limited budget.
