The ever-evolving field of collection development and management affects all parts of the library.

Taking a fresh approach, this comprehensive guide outlines the step-by-step process of collection development and management. Expert librarian Peggy Johnson offers tips for organizing and staffing, conceiving policy and creating budgets, and developing, marketing, and evaluating collections.

Drawing on the latest research, including ideas from business, management, organizational behavior, and sociology, you'll learn how to:

  • Allocate budgets

Practical tools include forms and charts that adapt to any library and suggested references for selecting materials.
