The registration deadline is May 21. Many academic libraries and large public library systems have found their collections bursting the seams of their traditional library buildings. In many cases, funding agencies are unwilling to add to existing buildings or build new library space on expensive, central property. Across the country, libraries have turned to storage facilities to relieve the space pressures in the stacks. An experienced panel of speakers will present practical information on managing a library storage facility once it is built. This preconference will focus on topics to assist the manager in planning operations, working with consortiums or stand-alone institutions, and carrying out the functions of a storage facility. In the afternoon, participants will work in organized discussion groups with the speakers and other experienced leaders to identify alternatives and discuss best practices in specific areas of competency. The faculty includes: Linda Chase, Assistant University Librarian for Collection Services, American University; Donald Kelsey, Library Facilities Planning Officer, University of Minnesota; Curtis Kendrick, Director, Access Services, Columbia University Libraries; Catherine Murray-Rust, Director of Campus Delivery, Project 2000/Associate University Librarian, Cornell University; Lizanne Payne, Executive Director, Washington Research Library Consortium; Gloria Stockton, President, Stockton Associates.
