Developing the BA Acquisitions
The BA Information Services Section is announcing the beginning of registration for the one-day Acquisitions Development course, which will begin on 27 November 2014. The course is part of the International Librarianship Training Program, which has begun this month.
During this course, trainees will learn about the basic principles that libraries follow in order to build their book collections and how these differ slightly according to each library’s overall mission and the needs of their respective patrons.
The course will also bring attention to the importance of having a written policy for developing a library’s holdings and how to use this policy as a reference for everyone involved in this process.
