Structured similar to an open office hour, Minitex Conversations are an opportunity for you to meet with Minitex staff on an informal basis to ask questions, learn more about a particular topic, and connect with others. The Digital Initiatives & Metadata Education (DIME) unit has been organizing a series of collection development conversations. Our next one will be "Project Management in Collection Development" on Thursday, February 29, at 1:00 pm.
We are partnering with Nicole Olila (Quatrefoil Library) and Carla Pfahl (Minitex) for this conversation about Project Management in Collection Development. These librarians will share their knowledge and experience with project management in library collections. You can join us by registering for this event.

In this conversation, we will discuss helpful tools, strategies, and best practices that libraries use to manage people, resources, and time in collection development work. There will be a deeper dive into the importance of communication and documentation in project management work. While project management is not typically part of librarian job descriptions, we’ll explore strategies for gaining recognition and communicating the value of project management in collection development work.
This conversation will use guided questions, live polls, and a JamBoard to engage the audience throughout the hour. Whether you are a seasoned librarian or an aspiring information professional, this conversation welcomes your participation. Bring your real-life case studies, share successful strategies, and lessons learned from past experiences.
Participants in this conversation will be asked about where we go next with this collection development theme. If you are interested in leading a Minitex Conversation on a collection development topic, please get in touch with Elissah Becknell.
