cHQlite uses the proven Evidence Based Stock Management (EBSM) methodology to effectively develop easy to follow Action Plans, giving smaller libraries the tools, they need to manage their collection.
Maintain – use the powerful analytical tools in cHQlite to identify missing and long overdue materials from your catalogue, allowing you to locate or replace materials your patrons may be missing out on.
Remove – Weeding your collection for Dead or Grubby materials can be time consuming and requires a regular commitment for maximum effectiveness. The easy-to-follow Action Plans developed by cHQlite can help you manage your collection more efficiently.
Renew – materials and tastes change, what may be relevant or interesting to your patrons when you first purchased it may now be out of date. cHQlite can help identify which materials are due to be refreshed.
cHQlite subscribers also get access to our award-winning Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) tools which can be used to help them ensure their community’s needs are being accurately met. Use the DEI tools to identify gaps in your collection and ensure that the diversity of your patrons is being fairly represented.
- Analyze your library’s Fiction and Non-Fiction collections against industry accepted DEI Topics.
- Effectively communicate diversity, equity, and inclusion in your collection to stakeholders in your community.
- Segment your Action Plan by category, giving you a more in-depth analysis of your collection.
