Review of Committee Charges

  • Collection development: provide regular weeding and selection tips, including e-book recommendations and possibly streaming and other online options for members to consider.
  • Assist with the selection of adult materials for the eBCCLS core collection.
  • 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.
