Promoting Dusty Collections in our Libraries

Promoting Dusty Collections in our Libraries | Special Libraries | Scoop.it
Apologies, it has been a few weeks since my last post. Life demanded 100%
of my attention and left me no time to write in this space.

Before I went on school holidays there was a bit of discussion about how to
promote teacher references (TR) on my local teacher librarian listserv. I
know that in my school library we have spent quite a bit of time and money
in developing a good TR collection and due to space restrictions it is
housed in our library storeroom. Sadly, it is rarely looked at and is
continuing to collect dust. What a waste! From the lively discussion on the
listserv, it looks like my school library is not the only one experiencing
this issue.

The following were excellent suggestions made by my colleagues (in
particular a shout-out goes to Barbara Combes for her suggestions) about
how to promote the TR collection:

* It is important to weed this collection and keep it relevant to the
new curricula.
* Have a rotating display in the staff room. To prevent losing
resources you could photocopy the covers with brief comments
describing the resource and which subjects it would benefit.
*  Send out regular emails to staff targeting select resources to
certain learning areas, with an image of the book cover and a brief
review.
*  You could even be cheeky and place advertisements for select
resources that would be interesting for staff in their toilets.
*  If you have your own library website, promote the resources in a
staff reads section.
* Some libraries have removed the resources from their collection and
donated them to individual learning areas for their own collection.
This is a controversial but common practice in school libraries.

Overarching all this is the importance for your library to have a
collection development policy, which you can refer to in regards to
purchasing resources and weeding. If you don’t have one yet, you can use
the ALIA guidelines to write one.
