In this hands-on workshop participants will learn to create a 
collection development plan for Web-based information resources for 
e-library collections.

Students will be required to login and use the online conferencing 
system for ten minutes at least 1 day before connecting to the class 
sessions.  Plan on at least one to one and one half hours for each 
online activity for a total of 4-6 hrs of  hands-on work.  Scheduled 
online live lecture, discussion and overview time is 2 hrs.

Each hands-on activity will step participants through creating first 
a collection plan, a collection strategy and how to use the 
collecting tools (search engines, directories, other people's 
e-libraries), evaluating the resources located and collected and 
finally selecting which resources will be included in their e-library.

Participants may chose to work with any type of subject e-library 
that they are interested in.  Participants may choose to purchase the 
instructor's book Building Electronic Library Collections: The 
Essential Guide to Selection Criteria and Core Collections  but it is 
not required.
