Williams, Virginia Kay. (2009). You want me to select for WHAT: Getting started in a new subject area. Webinar presented by the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services, December 2, 2009.
Abstract

Librarians are often assigned collection development responsibilities in unfamiliar subject areas, then struggle to learn about new subjects, assess local needs, and identify major publishers. Even experienced selectors can find a new subject daunting. This presentation will suggest strategies and resources for learning about unfamiliar subjects when assigned selection responsibilities, using examples from the presenter’s experience as a selector and working with new selectors.
