Event Details

NERL Core members Debra Falvey (Yale University), Laura Sill (University of Notre Dame) and L. Angie Ohler (University of Maryland) will present on “Advocacy in Acquisitions: Defining Value, Expanding Roles, and Staffing Intentionally” at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.

“The evolution of collections and services provided by the contemporary library are changing the nature of traditional acquisitions activities and jobs. Effective advocacy for these evolving roles is now a necessary part of the work of evaluating organizational needs, linking these needs to position responsibilities, and moving ahead with both reorganizations and recruitment. Join us as three information professionals acknowledge the role of advocacy for the work of acquisitions as a part of their efforts to evolve traditional roles and staffing within their libraries to meet user and organizational needs.”

Program will take place at the Washington Convention Center, 143B
