Collection Marketing

The vast majority of readers browse to discover their next read. It is also well documented that the majority of readers are a bit intimidated by the sheer size and volume of library collections. With this in mind, it makes good sense to devote some time and energy to assist readers in their discovery, by guiding them to materials of interest to them.

The learning opportunities listed below are designed to help library staff figure out how to highlight and market their collections.
