Charleston Library Conference 

Oct 17, 2022

Join us for our latest podcast episode featuring a conversation between Boaz Nadav Manes, University Librarian, Lehigh University Library, and Matthew Ismail, Editor in Chief of the Charleston Briefings and a Conference Director at the Charleston Conference.

Boaz is the University Librarian at Lehigh University. He previously worked in collection development and technical services at Brown University and Cornell University, as well as a stint with OCLC. Matthew and Boaz will discuss a new project, the Collaborative Collections Lifecycle Project, a vendor-neutral, open source, collaborative project on which Boaz has been working for years. Boaz says the mission of this new Project is to think “network first” in building and evaluating book collections at the level of the library, the consortium, and even at the national level. The CCLP would allow librarians, publishers and vendors to think strategically about book collection development, evaluation and preservation at scale and open new avenues of cooperation and rationalization of collecting activities.
