The Ebb and Flow of Floating Collections

Presented by: Ingram & Library Journal
Event Date & Time: Tuesday, September 12th, 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

We’ve all heard about floating collections—the pros and the cons. But how can we apply that reasoning to our libraries and the communities we serve? For starters, we can tap into the knowledge and experiences of those who have traversed those waters before.

Take a ride on our stream of consciousness as we discuss the ebbs and flows of floating collections with experts from varied walks of #TheLibraryLife and find answers to questions like:

What does floating collections mean to your library? What are some of the reasons you should choose to float your collection? Reasons not to float?

Answers to all these questions and more when you attend live or on-demand.
