Have you heard about “The Bookstore Model” and wondered what all the fuss is about? Are you ready to ditch Dewey but feel intimidated? Join us as Logan MacDonald from Anythink Libraries, and Holli Buchter, Media Services Coordinator for the St. Vrain School District share their experiences with going Deweyless. Both of these presenters have taken a different approach to this concept in their libraries, and they look forward to sharing their insight, process and challenges in this endeavor.
Learning Outcomes: By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- Identify potential strategies and partners in helping to transition part or all of their library collection to a “Bookstore Model.”
- Understand how this model has benefitted end users such as K-12 students and public library patrons.
Intended Audience: School and public librarians interested in rethinking how libraries organize and present their collections.
