Attend this session to learn about the importance of including world language materials in our collections and how you can start or expand your world language collections. You'll leave with tips and best practices, and you'll hear about innovative ways of collecting materials and connecting with the community, demand-driven acquisition, and self-publishing opportunities. Session presenters are members of MELSA's World Language group. The group has collaborated to create a list of world language vendors, which will be shared with session attendees.
