An Infopeople Webinar

Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenter: Steve Teeri & Anne Drozd

If your library can lend books, why not:

  • Telescopes and microscopes?
  • Synthesizers or spinning wheels?
  • Or even replica dinosaur bones?

A chief strength of libraries is making knowledge accessible through the lending of physical objects. Join us for an interactive discussion on building a circulating collection of objects for your library. Together we will explore how to select the tools needed by your community. We will also examine how partnerships with local organizations and events can help raise awareness of your tools collection.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Identify a starting point for developing a circulating tools collection.
  • Define community needs and potential partners.
  • Recognize ways to promote user interaction with your new collection through local and library events.

This webinar will be of interest to staff at any type of library with an interest in developing object lending collections.
