Call for Papers

* Acquisition and Collection Development Section
   *Theme: *

*“Shedding Light on the Reverse Side of Acquisitions--Using Deselection to Build Stronger Collections" *

The program will focus on the role of deselection/deaccessioning in collection development. This is an aspect of acquisitions/collection development that has received less attention among academic librarians, whereas public librarians are using deselection to build stronger collections for a long time. Fast-paced media transformation resulted in a modified service concept of academic libraries focusing on just-in-time provision of content rather than just-in-case collection development, and in a new understanding of usage as immediate return on investment. Also new concepts of space of public and academic library buildings require less book shelves in the open access areas. It is a perfect time for IFLA's Acquisitions and Collecrtion Development Section to highlight underestimated deselection as a means of building stronger collections during a two-hours open session at 2016 WLIC in Columbus/Ohio.

We are kindly asking for appropriate submissions shedding light on

·philosophy and policy of deselection in your library environment

·your deselection activities, results and statistics

·arguments of justification vis-à-vis funding authorities, and ethics of disposal of discarded items

·your disposal activities.
