Rethinking Library Resources: Print Collections in a Digital Age

Presentation to Faculty at College of Brockport (NY): Recorded 9/26/2012

This 90-minute presentation by SCS Partner Rick Lugg makes the case for reconsidering the role and extent of local print collections.

"One of the most helpful benefits of using SCS is faculty buy-in. Exposure to the SCS withdrawal candidate criteria allayed their concerns and increased their confidence in the outcome."
