Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,
anbei ein Call for Papers der Sektion für Erwerbung und
Bestandsentwicklung der IFLA für den internationalen Kongress in
Columbus/Ohio im August 2016.
Call for Papers
* Acquisition and Collection Development Section
*“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.

words should be submitted for review by members of the Section. The
