Synopsis

Now in Paperback! An essential tool to assist collection managers with the creation of a collection development policy. Because it covers all types and sizes of libraries, as well as electronic, non-print, and print materials, it is easily the most comprehensive, useful, and up-to-date guide available to librarians and library science students. No other manual is as complete and thorough, yet easy-to-read and understand. Examples provide advice about the writing process, who should be involved, components of the policy, its scope, criteria for selection, weeding, censorship, and many other issues that policy statements need to address. While intended as a non-technical guide for librarians and students who need to establish a collection development policy, the book will also meet the needs of experienced librarians who are reviewing and editing their existing policies. Cloth edition published in 1995.
