  • Description or summary of the book: 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.
