Once upon a time many libraries had exhaustive collection development policies that included how many different kinds of atlases they needed and how often they replaced foreign language dictionaries. Does your library have a collection development policy? Has it been updated since the internet? Since you embraced ebooks? Should libraries have a collection development policy? If so then how should it be revised for the twenty first century? Is the main audience internal or external? Does copyright play a role? This session will be an interactive so bring your collection development policy philosophy to share.
