about this item

Johnson, a retired university librarian and speaker and trainer on collection development and management, explains aspects of collection development in all types of libraries, with a focus on those in the US. She discusses the history of collection development and management; the organization and assignment of development and management responsibilities; planning, management policies, and budgets; types of materials and the selection process and criteria, the acquisition process, and acquisition options; vendor relations, negotiation, and contracts; managing collections; marketing, liaison activities, and outreach; collection analysis, accountability, and demonstrating value; and collaborative collection development and management. This edition includes updated examples and data and removes the chapter on scholarly communication and the impact of the open-access movement, addressing these topics in other chapters. It also adds new case studies, updates the glossary and appendices, and omits the appendix of policies. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
