Transforming Library Collections and Supporting Student Learning with Collection Mapping

This presentation discusses how the use of collection mapping transformed outdated and unbalanced print collections at Florida SouthWestern State College into collections directly supporting student learning. A collection map is a data driven picture of specific areas of library collections. This approach differs from past approaches to collection development as it doesn't focus on a breadth of subject areas striving to develop a large collection of many volumes that students could possibly find useful, but rather, considers various factors including program enrollment figures, reference interactions, and course content to develop a collection that contributes to the quality and integrity of academic programs. The presenter will explain methodologies used, including the creation of collection maps, and share results the project has yielded for FSW's Rush Library.
