Covering virtually every aspect of its subject, Collection Development and Management for 21st Century Library Collections is a soup-to-nuts guide perfect for students and beginning librarians, yet full of sage advice and new ideas for experienced practitioners. This landmark new text was overseen by a stellar editorial advisory board: Karen Brown (Dominican University), Kay Ann Cassell (Rutgers University), Alma Dawson (Lousiana State University), Ann O Neill (Emporia State University), and Patricia Oyler (Simmons College). Vicki Gregory, Professor at the University of South Florida, takes a process approach to her subject, making the book easy to consult about a specific question or problem. Practical and to the point, here's an authoritative guide to collection development and management that covers the entire gamut: Chapter 1: The Impact of New Technologies on Trends in Collection Development and Management; Chapter 2: Needs Assessment in Collection Development; Chapter 3: Collection Development Policies; Chapter 4: Selection Sources and Processes; Chapter 5: Acquisitions; Chapter 6: Budgeting and Fiscal Management; Chapter 7: Assessment and Evaluation of the Collection, including Deselection (Weeding); Chapter 8: Cooperative Collection Development and Resource Sharing; Chapter 9: Marketing the Collection and Outreach to the Community; Chapter 10: Legal Issues in Collection Development; Chapter 11: Diversity and ADA Issues; Chapter 12: Gifts and Exchanges; Chapter 13: Professional Ethics and Intellectual Freedom; Chapter 14: Preservation; Chapter 15: Future of Collection Development and Management. Each chapter includes discussion questions, activities, references, and selected readings. Special features include samples of a needs assessment report, a collection development policy, an approval plan, and an electronic materials license.
