The MELSA Collection Development Team focuses on library collection questions that have MELSA-wide scope and impact. This scope includes evaluation and coordination of shared ebook collections, collaborative collection development, best practices in evaluating and maintaining collections, equity in collections, advocacy with publishers and vendors, and exchange of ideas. Discussion will include collection activities in adult, teen and children’s services and materials in all formats.
This team works closely with the MELSA e-Resources team, including making recommendations for collections that fall within the eResources budget.
