The theme this month is the use of quantifiable market-based collection curation techniques versus using a critical, socially conscious approach. Are we librarians to determine what collections SHOULD have or to look at statistics of what already checks out? How do we consider invisible minorities such as LGBTQ teens, or anyone else the status quo labels as “non traditional.” How do we consider people who don’t come to the library but might if they felt there was something here for them (non users)?
