Abstract

Subject guidelines serve as a planning tool, a guide for selectors, and as a communication tool for library users, staff, administrators, and other libraries. The Ottenheimer Library at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock recently completed subject guidelines for most of the academic programs at the university. A team of three librarians and one paraprofessional developed a template for library selectors to use in creating subject-specific guidelines and guided the process to its completion. The poster session presenters described their role in creating the guidelines and shared their experiences working as a team. One of the completed guidelines was available for review.

All Hands on Deck: Creating Subject Guidelines

Subject guidelines serve as a planning tool, a guide for selectors, and as a communication tool for library users, staff, administrators, and other libraries. The Ottenheimer Library at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock recently completed subject guidelines for most of the academic programs at the university. A team of three librarians and one paraprofessional developed a template for library selectors to use in creating subject-specific guidelines and guided the process to its completion. The poster session presenters described their role in creating the guidelines and shared their experiences working as a team. One of the completed guidelines was available for review.
