We plan to invite Coutts to campus this summer or early fall to review approval profiles and we would like to include all Subject Specialists.  Please help us with planning by updating your calendar with vacations, conferences, or other times that you will be away from campus.   

Collection Assessment Activities
On April 25th, James presented Dartmouth College Library’s collection evaluation methods with regard to the Storage Project as part of the New Hampshire College & University Council (NHCUC), Library Assessment Interest Group at UNH Durham’s Dimond Library.
During April, James and Acquisitions Liaisons met with staff to discuss collections related matters at Paddock, Kresge, Feldberg, and Matthews-Fuller, which resulted in very fruitful discussions and ideas.
On May 1st, James attended a webinar on OCLC Collection Evaluation for weeding projects, accreditation reviews and more; and he will be attending the Acquisitions Institute at Timberline in Oregon from May 17-20.
Please contact James if you have any questions or would like additional information.
