Adapters, cameras, laptops and more! A scrumptious equipment collection is just as rewarding as a good ol’ bake off! Bethel University Library’s equipment has grown from a few laptops to a fully comprehensive selection for our students, faculty, and staff on campus.

In this session you will learn how to add equipment from scratch with a recipe that includes purchasing, cataloging, developing policies, and training library staff in consistent procedures for handling checkout and checkins. You will walk away with practical steps for growing your collection and a brutally honest understanding of the challenges and benefits of having a highly circulated, non-traditional collection. You will also hear from our Library Student Worker “star bakers” as they share their hands-on experiences with the established policies and procedures.
