Professional Collection

ProfCollectionShelfFrom time to time, the Capital Area Library District budget has some funds available to purchase items for a professional collection.

This collection of materials is housed at ADM and you can find all the titles and information about availability of items in the DCLS Online Catalog.ViewofProfCollection


Cumberland County Library System Administrative Headquarters also has an expanded collection of professional development resources for librarians.

If you attend a workshop and want to add the contents of a binder of materials you receive, or to donate a textbook you have used in a class that you found beneficial, please let your district consultant know and we can consider how to add it to the collection.

Suggestions for other titles are accepted all the time, but please be aware that budget funds are limited for this collection.  If its available via InterLibrary Loan, that’s a good first place to look.
