Core Collections

The first step in great readers’ advisory is a great collection. 

Resources for Educators and Librarians

The world of professional advice is wide, deep, and can be hard to navigate. If you're new to creating STEM lessons or adding hip-hop to library programming, it may be hard to know which resources are credible and which will lead you astray. Core Collections offers recommended resources for educators and librarians that can help you find the best materials to help the teachers and staff you work with facilitate their instruction.

Professional Development

Your staff is your library’s most valuable resource, and ongoing professional development keeps their skills sharp and relevant. We can help build the confidence and capacity they need to represent your library more effectively to readers, whether it’s at the desk, in the stacks, or through book displays, newsletters, and social media.

Recommended to librarians and libraries at all levels. Easy to use, economical and time-saving for librarians and paraprofessionals working on collection development.”


“We use Core Collections on a daily basis for our collection work from selection to weeding to help us balance demand and collection depth against budget constraints. Alerts help staff to get the information they need for their selection needs and recommendation levels make it easy for us to judge which titles should get extra copies if we have money at the end of the year.”
