ARLIS/NA Conference Collection Development SIG meeting: requesting topics

Hello to those interested in the Collection Development SIG.

If you will be attending the 2017 ARLIS/NA Conference in New Orleans, we hope to see you at our meeting on Feb 7 from 8:00-9:00 in our conference hotel.   The exact location has not been posted, but I sure hope it will be eventually!

If you have burning issues you wish to discuss, could you kindly let me know so that I can add them to the agenda?  If they inspire a great deal of discussion, I will stop the discussion and ask that those interested meet as a group at another time either in a self-scheduled room or another location, and ask that someone be designated to report back to me, even in bullet point form, what occurred, or what actions are going to be taken.

If you have suggestions for a session for the 2018 ARLIS/NA Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, please let me know, and let’s add this to the agenda to discuss as well.

We will be continuing with the Collection Development SIG Blog, and I would like to invite those of you with thoughts, ideas or concerns on subjects in our realm to please contact me if you would like to become a contributor or a regular author (contributing on a schedule at twice a year, and more if you’d like).  These blog posts can be as short as a few sentences.  The point is to provide useful information or to offer up thoughts about our lives in Collection Development or examples of ways to solve Collection Development problems, anything that will help our community and/or inspire dialogue.

At the end of our meeting, I will be transferring my chairmanship to our colleague Mary Wassermann of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (  Please join me in thanking her for taking on this assignment.

Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you,
Paula Gabbard  email:  phone: (212) 854-6745
