This week, I was tasked with ordering from a new vendor, CD Source. Of course, that also meant learning a new ordering process, but fortunately it was fairly straight-forward. I was happy to learn another ordering process however, since it is part of the collection development librarian’s job after all. Much like ordering from Theodore Front and Harrassowitz, the processes for using OCLC and Workflows to order the materials was the same.
With a new approach toward my collection development project, I focused on looking for prominent Nordic female composers. I went and found a few more books with hopes of discovering some prominent figures, but many of the leads I chased led me to dead ends. During this process however, I was able to discover other relatively obscure Nordic composers, so it wasn’t a waste of time entirely.
