Remodeling Library Collections
As library collections steer further toward online resources, patron driven acquisition models, stack reduction to create student study space, and shift focus toward open education resources / open access movements, print collections feel like a distant priority. This paper will present a case study of how the librarians at Penn State Berks re-conceptualized print collections with the development of the Discovery Lab to meet their community’s needs and reinvigorated their reference, instruction, student engagement, and campus outreach as a result. This cost-neutral project is a replicable model for other academic libraries to apply in their local context through strategic mapping and assessment.
