  1. Staff development and training focusing on collection development, reader's advisory, customer service, and other Adult Services basics. This should include developing training programs for key basic skills that are reproducible (with freedom to incorporate changes to account for new developments or personalities of presenters) for future committees or even reproducible at the library level.
  2. Collection development: provide regular weeding and selection tips, including e-book recommendations and possibly streaming and other online options for members to consider.
  3. Assist with the selection of adult materials for the eBCCLS core collection.
  4. Develop and maintain a repository of high-quality adult programs and vendors that libraries can draw on, including ideas for staff-led programs that allow libraries to develop cost-effective in-house programs.
