Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Updated to cover the latest opportunities and complexities posed by new technologies, this guide gives readers a comprehensive overview of the processes and procedures of developing, maintaining, and evaluating a collection at the building level. In this edition, Van Orden and Bishop cover copyright (fair use) issues and Internet (acceptable use) policies in greater detail. They also address developing technologies in terms of their impact on information access, resource sharing, and acquisitions.

Book News Annotation:

Focusing on the setting, materials, and administration, this handbook for media specialists describes the principles, techniques, and practices of collection development. It considers the environment in which the collection exists, identifies sources of assistance, identifies difficulties, and recommends ways of addressing the problems that arise. Chapters discuss policies and procedures, requests for reconsideration, selection criteria, educational perspectives, fiscal and access issues, maintaining the collection, evaluation, and major changes.
