ClipNote 42: Collection Development in a Changing Environment: Policies and Organization for College and University Libraries is the first all digital ClipNote publication. It is also the first ClipNote to use excerpts, many of which are hyperlinked, from more than 60 libraries. For each collection development policy element, the ClipNote provides examples of not only traditional policy language but also examples of unique, forward thinking or strategic language. The topical organization should be useful for a wide variety of large and small college and university libraries and will facilitate both writing an all-new policy or revising outdated sections of an existing policy.
