Hi everyone, The ASERL Collection Assessment Interest Group co-chairs are working on Spring programming. We want to start out with a membership meeting in January. Please complete this Doodle Poll<https://doodle.com/poll/w7d8xnaecm7pn8p7?utm_source=poll&utm_medium=link> by Wednesday, December 16 to let us know your availability. The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss the group’s priorities and set goals for the rest of the year. We would like to discuss initiatives beyond programming, such as developing a collection analysis data toolkit, building a resource page focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion in collection assessment, or other ideas you may have. Many thanks to all who completed our survey on 2021 programming. With 11 responses, here are the survey results: * Three formats were popular: traditional 1 hour webinar, 30-minute “meet the expert” sessions, and conversation via Zoom on a specific topic. * The most popular topic was Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with 9 votes. Three topics tied for second place with 7 votes each: Examples of working collection analysis approaches; Collections Strategy as the new Collection Development; Data skills for collection analysis. In third place with 6 votes was Qualitative approaches to collection analysis. * Suggested topics from the survey and our post-Charleston-Conference video chat: * Comparing different institutions’ assessment of specific resources. * Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in relation to the Big Deals * DDA – practical considerations * Looking ahead to life after COVID: The pandemic forced a short term pivot to e-resources. Should we let that shape our long term decisions? * How are group members managing print collections when faced with dwindling library space? * Suggested speakers: Madeline Kelly. Please feel free to respond to this email with any additional comments or suggestions!
