Course Description

A six week online course on collection management, designed to meet the elective requirement for the Library Support Staff Certification program. This course is designed to introduce students to the basic principles and functions of collections in libraries. This includes how library staff select, maintain, assess, and deselect materials in the collection. Collection staff must be able to assess library user needs, analyze how well the collection meets those needs, and balance a wide variety of factors in deciding which resources to add to the collection and which resources to remove. This course will get you started in all of these areas, as well as give the specific competencies laid out by the LSSC program.
