Policy in Practice
Librarians create policies with the best of intentions. What happens when the policies run up against daily life in the library? The discussion will touch on things like:
Bring your (constructive) horror stories and be prepared to (kindly) offer your opinion.
Please refer to the NHLA Cancellation Policy.
So you've followed through with CREW and weeded the collection. Now it's time to consider how to build a collection that really serves your community. Join us to discuss practical considerations like resources and vendors, catalogs and community input, and space limitations.

Gail Zachariah will explore the range building library collections for young people with an emphasis on nonfiction collections. Nonfiction books for young people are an increasingly important part of publishing. Learn how to develop a well-rounded collection based on what's popular, what's appropriate, and what's fun so that you can meet the homework and leisure reading interests of your patrons. Gail will discuss how to evaluate and select books and how different books may appeal to different audiences. She’ll suggest tools for librarians to keep current with upcoming releases. Finally, she’ll discuss ways to create buzz around these books. Attendees will leave with a booklist of not-to-miss new titles.
