Vermont Library Conference Report

I attended this one day conference on May 24th. Some of the sessions may be of interest for those of you outside the Ref & Instruction Work group.  My full notes are available online (no login required).  The topics in my report  include:

  • Health & Wellness Resources (mainly free online resources recommended by a UVM medical librarian)
  • Borrow or buy? The convergence of Interlibrary Loan and Collection Development
  • Use is King: User-Centered Acquisitions (background on past practices and details of UVM’s “Order on demand” program).

I tried to spell out some of the acronyms/jargon for the wider LIS audience, but if something isn’t clear, just ask me or post a comment.
