Attached is a copy of the recommendations made by the Collection Development Advisory Group at a meeting held at NLS in Washington, D.C., May 25-27, 2011. Each recommendation is followed by a response developed by the Collection Development Section in collaboration with other NLS staff members as appropriate.
Because of budgetary constraints, the Collection Development Advisory Group will not meet in 2012. The group will next meet in 2013. Information about the next meeting will be conveyed to conference chairs and consumer groups as soon as it is formulated, probably in mid-2012. Please contact Ed O'Reilly with questions and concerns.
