Collections Community

The Collections Community provides a space for COPPUL member libraries to exchange ideas and develop potential programs to support collections development.


The Collections Community will provide support and guidance across its community:

  •  Monitor trends in library collections services in order to generate ideas for enhancement of collections initiatives at the consortium level.
  • Make recommendations to the COPPUL board on policies or strategic initiatives that could be resolved through collective action.
  • Serve as a forum for sharing information about collection management issues and best practices for licensing electronic resources at both the consortium and institutional levels.
  • Organize webinars on collections issues to support the work of the collections staff at COPPUL member organizations.
  • Communicate and coordinate with other COPPUL committees and working groups as needed to carry out the above.


Membership is open to any interested individual.
