Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This conversation session is grounded in research conducted in Fall 2019 and provides participants with collection development trends among Religious Studies subject specialists who are responsible for purchasing materials. After briefly introducing these trends, the presenters will acknowledge the membership base of Atla as comprised of Religious Studies and Theological Librarians, and guide a discussion on how Atla members engage in collection development. Questions to prompt discussion may include: What effective collection development strategies exist among Atla members? What collection development struggles are faced and what are the needs most acutely felt by Atla members? How can Atla members provide support for one another to satisfy these needs? How are the trends represented by the conversation group coordinators similar to or different from the professional practice of Atla members?
