Materials on the Move: Strategies for Delivery, Distribution and Storage

Courier and delivery. Shared remote storage. Floating collections. Redesigned resource sharing. The delivery and distribution of library materials continues to evolve as libraries maximize service and efficiency for users. Finding scalable solutions for storage and sharing of physical library resources requires rethinking collection development, and reciprocal agreements, and long-term planning. This Amigos Library Services online conference will explore changes and trends in delivery, courier services, distribution, and storage of library materials.
