As libraries continue their mission to become community cornerstones, there is a new spirit of cooperation between public and school libraries. Nowhere is this more evident than in Nashville, where Nashville Public Library and Metro Nashville Public Schools have partnered to create the Limitless Libraries cooperative to improve school libraries, resource sharing, and student access to learning materials. The Library Corporation’s CARL•X was selected as the shared ILS at the heart of this project. You’re invited to join TLC and Library Journal for a special webinar to discuss the Limitless Libraries concept and how it could work for your community.

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT
This webinar will not only discuss how to improve decisions when purchasing new items, but also how to make existing collections work harder. Until recently, many libraries would respond to the high volume of dead items in their collections through weeding alone. Our panel will discuss the use of an evidence-based transfer process to move dead items to new locations where there is a proven demand, therefore offering an item every chance to circulate before it is removed from the collection.

Now, it’s time to understand why this happens and how to better design our libraries with these things in mind.
