New England Collection Management Institute

From: Eileen Hardy <ehardy>
Date: Friday, April 21, 1995
New England Collection Management and Development Institute
Wellesley, MA
July 27-29, 1995

Objective:  To provide an overview of the major issues in the
planning, development, and management of library collections in a
radically changing and challenging environment; to provide
up-to-date and practical training which meets user needs and
maximizes financial and human resources.  In addition to treating
traditional collection development concerns, special attention will
be directed to equipping collection development librarians to work
with information in electronic formats and resource sharing
environments.

Methods:  Papers, panel discussions and issue sessions will be among
the variety of instructional techniques employed. Meals, breaks and
social events will provide additional opportunities for participants
to meet and talk with others and will encourage discussion of
collections issues throughout the institute.

Audience:  The institute is designed for all practicing librarians,
at various stages in their careers, who deal with collection
management issues on a regular basis.  The issues treated will be
useful for librarians in variety of settings.

Sponsors:  Some events at this institute are generously underwritten
by EBSCO Subscription Services and Yankee Book Peddler.

Fees:  $225 for ALA-ALCTS members; $270 for ALA personal members;
$315 for non-ALA members.

Institute Resident or Commuter packages:  Resident housing will be
provided in a recently-renovated dormitory on the Wellesley College
campus for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights.   To apply, fill

Cancellations will be accepted until July 5, 1995. No refunds will
be extended to no shows or cancellations received after the July 7,
1995 deadline.

   *    The resident package of $195 (singles only) includes
        lodging, breakfasts, lunches, an Institute dinner.  It also
        includes the use of the Wellesley College facilities: the
        Keohane Sports Center, Lake Waban Beach, and the Wellesley
        College Library.

   *    The commuter package of $65 covers three lunches, and an
        Institute dinner.

Both packages include curriculum materials, on-campus parking, and
an Institute dinner.

Setting:  Wellesley College is situated on a 500-acre suburban
campus, 12 miles west of Boston, on the shores of Lake Waban. In a
setting of woodlands, hills and meadows, an arboretum, ponds,
footpaths and fitness trails, participants will have a chance to
interact with their colleagues in an informal environment.
Participants are encouraged to dress casually and to enjoy the
natural and cultural resources that Wellesley offers.

Cancellation:  Institutes are offered on a cost-recovery basis and
may be canceled if there is insufficient registration. If an
activity is canceled, the sponsors cannot be responsible for
cancellation/change charges assessed by airlines and travel
