Fashion and Textiles Collection Development, Stitch by Stitch
From Meredith Hale on March 31st, 2021
Does your institution serve fashion and textiles researchers? Then don't miss this webinar, which will examine resources and strategies for developing collections in this specialized subject area. Robin Dodge, Special Collections Librarian at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, will discuss trend forecasting services for libraries: what they are, why to consider building a trend forecasting collection, special considerations for access, and specific recommendations for libraries with both small and large budgets. Edith Serkownik, Assistant Professor at the June F. Mohler Fashion Library at Kent State, will touch on fashion and textiles collection development policies, key publishers, reviews, reference resources and research databases, as well as some of the free resources that are available. These are encore presentations from the "Postcards from the Edge" workshop at ARLIS/NA 2011 annual conference.
