The Australian School Library Association national conference took place in the Term 3, 2013 school holidays in Hobart.
SCIS Manager, Pru Mitchell facilitated a workshop on the future of library collections, asking:
- Is a collection of resources fundamental to the school library’s role?
- What priority should be given to balanced, professionally selected and managed collections in emerging learning environments?
The workshop considered the assumptions behind these questions, reviewed the changes taking place in school library collections, and discussed associated resource and information management challenges.
