Current Trends and Best Practices in Collection Development

On the occasion of the Philippine Academic BookFair, the Philippine Association of Academic and Research Librarians (PAARL) in cooperation with the Association of Booksellers for the Academe and the Profession (ABAP) is organizing a half-day forum on “Current Trends and Best Practices in Collection Development” on July 26, 2007 (Thursday) at Function Room-B, SM Megatrade Hall, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City from 1:00pm — 5:00pm.

The forum is intended to update the participants on the underlying concepts and integral components of collection development based on current practices, featuring a timely and systematic method of selection and acquisition of library resources. It will also provide practical tips on how to effectively engage in economical book buying and book pricing awareness. Equally qualified and competent speakers are invited to share their significant views on the topic. PAARL’s accomplished Special Project on “Core Collections of Filipiniana Materials” in CD format will likewise be promoted for sale. The project coordinator was invited to further introduce and discuss its contents.

There is a registration fee of P150.00 for non-members, P100.00 for members and P50.00 for library science students. Registration promptly begins at 12:00 noon. For inquiries and reservations, please contact any of the Officers/Directors of the Association:
