Reference, Instruction, and Outreach (RIO)

Guide to provide a forum to learn and share ideas about the various aspects of library reference, instruction, and outreach.

Meeting Notes

The group discussed collection development and weeding.

Collection development/selection:

  • Curriculum-based vs. patron based
  • Choice magazine - provides reviews and 'choice cards' with synopsis, recommendations
  • Doody's Core Titles - analysis/recommendations for medical/health sciences
  • Format needs can have a strong influence on selection
  • Policies - no textbooks, etc.
