Quality collection development isn’t easy.  It involves assessing the library’s collection, crafting a collection development policy, selecting materials, and weeding the collection.  This guide also briefly discusses acquisitions because it is an essential partner of collection development.

Please check back often and use the Comments feature liberally.  This guide is intended to be changed frequently.
